Poem: Judgement Day
To view mankind and taste it’s lies
To see it with unblinded eyes
A tortured world
On a lustful ride
On a ship called self
On a sea called pride
Prophets, Priests of every creed
The most elite
The Beast deceived
A twist of scripture
“To be a god”
The Devil grins
Temples, Towers, Bishops, Popes
Around men's necks they put their ropes
Many vain a mortal said :
“The Only Path to God I lead”
Some kept Christ upon the cross
Still in darkness
The world religions prayed to God
While on the souls of men they trod
They all believed they were the way
Until their trial
On Judgment Day!
