You May Be - Poem by Francis Duggan
You may be a kind hearted person love and care for your family and wife
Yet some will see you as quite unworthy if you do not have God in your life
You must have the fear of God in you for them to score you nine out of ten
In a World of so many religious people respect is a hard thing to win.
Fundimentalist Muslims and Christians as well as fundimentalist Jews
They try to cloud over our thinking and impose on us their own views
And if your God is different to their God to their beliefs you they will try to change
They will look upon you as inferior though an atheist to them than you even more strange.
You may be a hard working person and perform at least one good deed every day
And to help out people in trouble you even go out of your way
But religious zealots will see fit to condemn you if to their God you do not kneel to pray
Far too much religion and too little tolerance ignorance can be bliss so they say.
It is true that like minded people to like minded people relate
In you there may be huge room for improvement but you tell everyone God is great
You cheat others out of their money and you are unfaithful to your wife
But you are seen as a good person since you have got God in your life.
