Beliefs - Poem by roy may

Don’t you sometimes think it odd
That wars are fought in the name of God?
Behind religion armies hide
Claiming God is on their side

But what is even stranger still
The Gods tell us we must not kill
Yet we strive with all our might
To prove that only our Gods right

And of the others there’s no doubt
Our Gods say we should wipe them out
All religion beneath the sun
Believes that it’s the only one

To whom mankind should kneel and pray
So to these ends we wound and slay
Since the very dawn of time
In Gods name we commit this crime

Perhaps if all religions cease
Mankind will at long last find peace
Well here’s my own agnostic view
God and religion NO thank you
