barabbas …

murderous traitor
count the dead in this nation
how can anyone
that claims that there is a god
crucify the innocent
instead of the beast
do they long to bathe in blood
that of our children
or of those too poor to beg
for their god’s mercy
are silver coins of greed’s realm
worth denying sacred words
will the holy bed
be soiled with the putrid
lies of one man’s lust
or will the faithful remove
each bloody nail from faith’s hands

 

titillating tithing…

pulpit politicos
those
practicing pharisees
promote protecting
the unborn child
but
those already born
are forgotten
once outside
the hospital doors
and as for
their mothers
who were once
called
sacred vessels
of
god
now are
unwed whores
shunned from
those sacred doors
adorned with
golden images
representing
your heavenly reward
redeemable
if
and
only if
you contribute
funds
to be used
at
the discretion
of
god’s
terrestrial representatives
for
indiscretions
representatives
whose sermons
give
a new meaning
to
the golden fleece
