Political Hypocracy


Hail Christians, Harken to me

I say I’m a Christian, surely you see

I pretend to believe in your ways

I love to fool you through voting days


I know you don’t have to believe

When it’s clear that I practice to deceive

Just ignore that Godless rhetoric

Just listen to the sound bites that you pick


I will advance the causes you believe in

Regardless of my life of living in a sin

Pay no attention to my misdeeds and lies

Just don’t look too deeply into my eyes


For I am a hypocrite without moral law

But this is not what is coming from my jaw

Just as you ignore verses you don’t believe

Hand pick the passages from me you receive


Perhaps it is okay to take the ends from the means

Justify a good ending through bloody scenes

Even though you know that mostly I’m a liar

But go ahead and sing with the choir


Ignore all those falsehoods that I say

As long as it continues our ‘moral’ way

Accept our sins as a means to the end

See the blackened corpses that you rend

I am a poet/writer with a hunger for words. There are so many out there that I haven't used yet. They define all reality and especially mine when you read those from me.
