Mistaken by subsequent Races
The notion of god and his traces
From Solon to Solomon
From Mosses to Marx
And of course
From necromancy to theocracy,
How can He simply be a Semitic? *
And to be mute in Gallic and in Attic**
These are nothing but
Fancies and an aura of Romance
That brought the humanity in trance
To cease their peace and certitude
And blessed them with an uncertain attitude
And fooled the Mortals as child
From mild to wild'
How graciously marked by a Renaissance`s soul
'That there is no sin but ignorance
And count religion but a childish toy***
Isn`t this a fable or old wives` tales?
Priest, monk, Saints, cleric and rabbi
These are but heralds of heaven and hell
Claimed to be revealed
With scriptures holy sealed
Deluded the truth that was cognate
And framed the free Will stark and stagnate
The mysteries of life and death
Of good and evil
Of heaven and hell
Of Doom and Will
Aren`t illusions and mantle repressions?
Viciously drafted to hail their worldly vision
In the name of god and Far from precision.
