Damned Human Race

You may not like it,
  you may not agree

But religions’ the problem,
  the real enemy

A blind ideology,
  that kills to maintain

A false image of God,
  to blaspheme and profane

The Koran—the Crusades,
  the excuses—the lies

Fanatical visions,
  the death they imply

The future will judge,
  what the present impales

The shame and the heartbreak,
  humanity failed

As ISIS and Hamas
 kill the innocent child

The real God enrages,
  his judgment on file

So spew out your dogma,
  and dig in your heels

As millions will die,
  for what you think you feel

The universe watches,
  eternity waits

For this plague to be over,
 —this damned human race

(Villanova Pennsylvania: May, 2017)
