Invasive cloud of evil shuns
Humanity gasps a ceasing breath
Rising smoke from burning slums
A blasphemy is burned to death
A waning faith yet saved again
By mass uncouth, unruly men
Baptized in greed and hate they reign
At heart of evil’s burning den
The faithless poor are left to live
Owe mercy to that blessed mob
In name of God they choose to give
A right to live, though life they rob
By burning, looting broken home
Will they redeem a life of sin?
In paradise, will they now roam?
By stripping weak of shattered tin
What fails to grasp my novice mind?
How faith propelled by endless peace?
A faith that blessed its enemies
Can now demand such horrid plots?
Those men who vanquished evils l true
In times of blood animosity
Had neither killed nor injured too
It’s how they lived eternity
Go fight, the growth of ills within
Thy faith shall live, as lived up till
Let him decide if one did sin
He puts them right if he does will
My faith now needs no saving please
No bands of men with torch it needs
It’s you who needs to see the fleece
Of greed within the one who leads
