~~~ Deceiver ~~~
~ Deception ~
V1/ The glib, the trite, feign regal obscurity,
To saddle you these bluff insecurities.
Duplicity of their sophistry;
Fiendishly clever, misleading reasoning,
Spoils the harvest and truthful seasoning.
V2/ Laying snares to trophy us;
Solicitous as Tantalus.
This useless myth a fine example,
Of things you shouldn't really sample.
V3/ Their effervescent, false indulgence,
Shall cease to thrive in your effulgence;
Evil priests ply doctrinal blunders,
Pontificating, cloudless thunders.
V4/ Bait and switch to suck you in,
For sex and money and spiritual sin.
Sanctimonious, abnormal sadness,
Racing with unbridled madness.
V5/ Cults and sects and lies and schisms;
Churchianity and various ' isms '.
An elegy for the worldly-wise,
Of double-dealing compromise.
V6/ Make haste, lay waste the mentally blind,
They laugh at God and mock mankind.
They'll capture you with false ideas,
And prey upon your loveless fears.
V7/ Abominate your precious daughters;
Inflict upon them rigor mortis,
To prostitute their love they sought us,
Perverting man, new sins they taught us.
V8/ Seducing spirits, demonic vultures,
Steer helms of failing, jaded cultures;
Money-stealing, soul collecting,
Campaign the unwary and unsuspecting.
V9/ Raise your shields, wield ready swords;
Defend, then cut a path through frauds;
Stand your ground and hold the lines,
Await instructions, heavenly signs.
