Then Such Is Life

To the God of his choice he does pray every day
But of his nearest neighbors he does not have one nice thing to say
Of a different religion and race respect to them he cannot pay
Though they have not harmed him in any way

He believes on his version of God but not on live and let live
And to those who are different credit he cannot give
Friendships with those of different beliefs he could not cultivate
And those who are different to him he just tolerate

He firmly believes in his God in the sky
But to love his neighbor to him does not apply
Since his neighbors are of a different religion and of a different race
And difference is something that he cannot embrace

To the God of his choice he often kneels to pray
But of his neighbors he never has kind things to say
Those not of similar background and who do not believe as he does he choose as his foes
But then such is life one would have to suppose.
