In Name Of God - Poem by Francis Duggan

In name of God they pillage and destroy
And in name of God they chose to fight and die
And their enemies their enemies because
They worship different God with different laws.

When I was young a wise man said to me
That God belong to all humanity
And that god could only feel disgust and shame
When humans for their war cry use his name.

It's religion that cause the great divide
And in name of God far too many have died
They go to war and worship God in song
But the God they fight for condemn war as wrong.

And even in the twentieth century
We've yet to learn from past history
Still in God's name men go to war and die
Whilst God looks on with disapproving eye.
