'' Behind You There's A Very Long Queue '' - Poem by Bri Mar
I'll set the tone,
So let it be known,
The answer you can admit or deny,
Are you the one who can cast the first stone,
Your credibility on this will apply.
Have you told an untruth?
Perhaps been uncouth,
Can you say not once you have strayed?
No you're not allowed to blame it on youth,
The commandments have you fully obeyed,
Have you ever killed,
Does that leave you chilled?
The truth is your only answer,
Do you go against what your god has willed?
Hiding your guilt's like a cancer.
Has your past been deleted?
Perhaps when you cheated,
Your excuse is with lust you were driven,
Sins well hidden forever remain heated,
With that conscience all humans were given.
Have you ever lied,
Is that why you cried,
When you think of the misery it brought,
Remember the truth cannot be denied,
This isn't as easy as you thought.
Sins present and past,
Will forever last,
They leave us with a feeling of regret,
When a sin is committed the die has been cast,
It's something we will never forget.
Don't ever judge,
From the facts don't budge,
Not even god can claim to be pure,
Though the truth you can sometimes smudge,
The reality does tend to endure.
Does this make you smoulder?
Look over your shoulder,
There's none of us could see this task through,
Don't feel ashamed as you walk past the boulder,
