Malign Conviction – a poem

Malign Conviction

 

Beheadings, stonings

Crucifixion

All the result of malign

Conviction.

In the name of God no

Contrition.

Messianic thugs without

Restriction.

 

Radicals and fanatics

Go and come

Reciting verses

Ad infinitum.

Strict adherence

Conscience numb.

Banging loudly on a

Different drum.

 

Religion has no answers

For the road to paradise.

Here on in some after-life

They’re skating on thin ice.

 

Opher – 3.3.2019

 

 

As the evil heartless scum of ISIS are finally defeated and the Caliphate brought to an end we should reflect on the callousness and cruelty, the intolerance and extremism, that is put into practice by the followers of god.

Down through the ages the patterns have been set.

How can anybody believe in a god so cruel?

How can anybody believe that their viciousness will find favour with any god?

It is psychotic.

I'd like to hear from you...
