When Is A Good-Deed Really A Good-Deed - Poem by Josephine DixonBanks

The act of Good-Will is a cover to kill
Butcher the rain forest and Mother Nature at will
Honorable ulterior motive is the motif
The hidden agenda of a covert thief

Cruelty to humanity the system of control
Forced sterilization and Eugenics unfold
What about the truth will it be told
Who has the audacity, who is so bold

The innocent dead still bleed
Their mortified cries and moans continually plead
When is a good-deed, really, a good-deed

Look behind histories door
Holy lies sprawled out on the floor
Wars and mass murder fuel their passion
Instead of the truth, sacred falsehoods are satisfication

The five hundred year reign of The inquisition
Organized terrorism, a mere imposition
Harassing homosexuals, a new witch hunt rages
Mentally and emotionally we are still in The Dark Ages

Useless killings and torture is not courageous
With a garb of glory, it is still outrageous
Anger full of hate and violence seems to be contagious
Festering in the heart of do gooder sages

The innocent dead still bleed
Their mortified cries and moans continually plead
When is a good-deed, really, a good-deed
