God Is Love, but Where Are All Lovers?: a Satirical Poem
Many were born not out of love but lust
and many spent whole life unloved and odd
with so many others having kissed the dust
while falling in the name of someone's god.
Eons have passed since the Word was spoken
one about sacrifice, compassion and love
but more often than not that faith was broken
with just surviving stories of a heaven above.
If there are true lovers they must live in hide
humble after taming their wicked heart
reluctant to proclaim a god as their guide
just living His truth enlightened and smart.
You may have heard all others loud and clear
about a Judgement coming of one kind or another
preaching about the evil and how the end is near
hateful and intolerant, but calling you a brother.
So strange is this world with their belief
not really knowing if they are coming or going
altruism and love expired with no grief
just everyone reaping whatever they were sowing.
With so many gods, each with love as their name
in this world wallowing in war and pretense
where are all lovers, or is it all the same
loving or hating in this godless lack of sense?
