Too Much Religion - Poem by Curtis Doherty

Too much religion is a dangerous thing,
Death and destruction is what it can bring.
Buddhists and Christians and Moslems and Jews
Killing each other for their point of view. Too much religion is a dangerous thing,
Crusades by dozens exchanging their kings.
"Forgive them all, for they knew what they do"
Words from a prophet twisted by fools. Too much religion is a dangerous thing,
Bloody deception for a chance at the ring.
Pray that your faith is the fate that you choose,
God is god, only you can lose!
