The Human Gods (Based On Psalm 82) - Poem by Daniel Partlow

Oh you proud gods in black
How you wage your attack
On the only True Law
Now your corrupted maw
And false-whited locks are back

Legislating from the bench
Using gavel as a wrench
To open Hell's Pandora box
Binding souls in Sodom's locks
Burning Molech's incense: fleshy stench

You gods in white and baby blue
Mocking purity with thy hue
Then defiling mother's matrix
Wielding scalpel, knife, and latex
Or a deadly devils brew

You gods in crimson power tie
Who loveth and maketh many a lie
Steeped in vanity and graft
You slyly ploy your stately craft
As your acts deny the Lord on high

You gods in colors of the alma maters
Pouring toxins in our waters
Teaching now that sin is not
And other lies that you have bought
Deceiving our good sons and daughters

You gods in blue-chip Armani suit
Adopting so much P.C. policy-fruit
All best practices were taught
But you choose to let them rot
You care for nothing but thy loot

You gods in green and Marxist red
The ground you tread is strewn with dead
Check that thy priority
Is good for all humanity
Not just thy vanity instead

You gods who claim the color purple
Throw thy stone and watch the ripple
When for popularity
You fan our lust of iniquity
Action and consequence uncouple

You gods in earthy camouflage
The peace you seek is a mirage
If the means to it requires
Violent quagmires
Thy priorities need triage

You gods with Napoleonic crowns of gold
So ambitious, proud, self-made, and bold
Let a little introspection
And humble reflection
Return you to the Shepherd of the fold

You gods of yellow journalism
O’er pages and waves flinging jism
Your cracked prism distorts truth and light
When you portray the wrong as right
How will you spin your coming cataclysm?

You proud and mighty Justices are blind
To The Law of His Perfect Holy Mind
And with your darkened view
Woe is what you imbue
When Holy Truth is maligned

But God stands in this congregation of the proud
And He judges you gods of rainbow shroud
How long will ye subvert true laws,
Promoting all thy wicked cause?
Won't you defend our children from Satan's crowd?

Do justice to the afflicted, poor, and needy
Deliver them from the hand of perverse and greedy
But alas, you do not now nor ever will you
You walk blindly, doth the darkness fill you
Thy lot be cast, thy pact is made: an unholy treaty

Ohh, society is knocked off it's foundation!
When His constitution causes such consternation.
Ye mighty gods are bullies, mean and naughty
And you will die like the proud and haughty**
Arise, O God, judge the earth, and inherit every nation
