Idol Worship~


Celebrating our common humanity
i am inspired by a seemingly endless divinity
Drawing on the information of my muse
Pen in hand i write of an 'imagined' eternity;

An eternity of blessed souls and warriors
Gathering together as a union of 'one'
Making God blessed plans for recovering goodness
While removing all of the evils practiced under the sun;


You know the ones linked to idol worship
The ones that cast spells and curses of harm
The black witches of 'abstract and ugly'
The cold-blooded-'Amoral'-that are cause for alarm


Ending their accrued 'vile and hurtful'
Erasing these 'Blackbirds' of gloom
Wiping clean the scarlet stains they leave behind
Without God- they are: 'bound and doomed';

Satan get thee behind us
We deny you any entrance in
Our sacred promises to God are honored daily
Leaving you to receive the consequences of your egregious sins;
