In The Name Of Religion - Poem by Pheko Motaung

In the name of religion
Some are forced into the
Disaster of refugees camps
And those that they drive to
Exile in the name of religion
Are my brothers and sisters

In the name of religion
From birth to birth
They lie to us and they will
Not hesitate to sell Jesus and
God to us while all the time they
Oppress us and our loved ones
In the name of religion

In the name of religion
Until each one of us is dead
They jail our true leaders and
And kill our brave sons and
Daughters who resist their onslaught
Who are not afraid of them and the
Arrayed phalanx of their security forces

In the name of religious
As corpses pile upon corpses
They indoctriname the gullible
Among us and they sell their
Propaganda to the least suspecting
Of who will believe any lie so long
As it is repeated contless times
And the best of those who follow them
Are the the best of my youthfull friends

In the name of religion do not lock
Yourself in the prison of your room and weep
With God deciding to break ranks with
Them we the oppressed of the world
Will triumph and in the name of
Religion among us will emerge many
Who will usher in a more just world
Or we all perish to the pitiless sound
Of the merciless hail of their bullets

    In the name of Religion they kill innocent people
    In the name of Religion they lie to us like we don't know their Religion.

    Great poem Mr Motaung.
