Religion Is Melting Humanity's Wit


Religion is melting humanity's wit
As a wildfire burning brains
A fire set by a madman, long ago lit
Scorching the stupid, the weak and insane

Infant minds, the flames pummel and lash
They suffocate men from their birth
Doctrines' smoke, polluted with ash
Has confused and clouded this Earth

A forest flash, a hellfire crash
Is salvation's light and sound?
Sparks ablaze from dogma's clash
Is consuming fire found?

Raze it not, protect this ground
With a sterling sire's might
Nurture saplings, grow this mound
With virtue's righteous light

Bring not this fertile forest round
To a long inferno night
But with a wick, and wax as bounds
Give your candlelight

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
