In Regards to Evil
You say that man is evil
Really, what do you mean?
He violated your conscience
before you rupture a splean
consider your beliefs are up in the air
when was the last time you lived them all?
Who knows what they believed
when they appalled you to fit the label.
those ones with funny clothing
the ones you hate so dear
do you know what they believe
what they would do for that belief
how strictly they adhere to what they know?
really for all of your blather
would you take your life
or give your all
and if you did when life's at issue
do you imagine those who misunderstand
who see you in camouflage or with a gun
that you then bear the label
blithely issued without a clue
perhaps its time to define evil
it might shock you where I draw the line
there is nothing worse
then one who does
that which they could not confess
the little dishonesties
the bigger ones
the slights and malcontents
the breaking of vows
making promises we do not mean
jading our sight with arousal's source
without counting the cost
when children and women fear the night
when a handshake isn't enough
when honor is sold
used as a glib reply
when a man can't be found
to hold office or wear a crown
who would serve without tyranny's call
when these things are
having no one to bleed to stop it.
then the complacent
are evil's thrall
So don't blame it on the Holy One
a third were lost to give you the right
to be evil with all your indifference
malicious or nagligent
to be filled with vice.
It's not His fault
he will not force
but the law will have its way
and then all the evil
will pay for their evil
and that is judgement day.
