Facade Of Respectibility - Poem by Josephine DixonBanks

Behind the mask of high moral standards
Murder and destruction is the total being
The cause of peace must be defended
Make war to promote democracy

Hatred is learned behavior
Taught by actions of power hungry marauders
Dressed as saints

As lone as the church says it’s okay
Decayed carcasses must lay exposed
A message to those who disobey
