Love Thy Neighbor - Poem by KMC Centlivre

Jesus said a lot of things, Mohammed said them, too
Moses went to the mountaintop, Dr. King did, too
But, no one really listened to them
Instead they put their pictures on the wall
bound their writings up in leather
read interpretations of them all
an image stands; a hero falls

Everybody wants to be Jesus, Mohammed looked a lot like me
Moses, he's a friend of mine, I had Dr. King for tea
But Jesus has his way with women
Mohammed has a taste for oil and blood
Moses builds a strong militia
Dr. King says racism is good
An image stands; a hero falls
