Lies

Lies

A Poem by Christopher Kneipp
"

Mix and match religion.

"
        

Lies,

Fill the world with lies
In my favourite disguise, they hypnotise,
I love those lies.
 
L i e s
Blinding so many eyes
Truth compromised,
We criticize
and Feed 'em lies.
 
And if it's love they want
We'll just give them lust
And if they need a friend
Then we'll abuse their trust
Instead of dreams of hope
We turn their hopes to dust
Instead of bread of life
Give them a stale crust.
 
Pride
Religous pride
Let righteousness slide,
Let traditions decide
What's wrong and right.
 
Pride
The truth denied,
Rituals applied,
In their vestments they hide,
What's really inside?
 
Hide the word of God
Behind the rules of men
You don't need integrity
When you pretend
No commitment necessary
Just attend
At Christmas and Easter
An occasion'l weekend
 
Philosophy
You've got to agree
Easier to believe,
a fantasy
Than to search for the key.
 
Philosophy
If it was up to me,
Then no one would see,
that nobody is free
'till their master is He.
 
And in this world we teach you
To match and mix
You build your house of straw
And not with bricks
But if your new belief
It contradicts
Itself, don't worry
If the facts don't fit
 
Just take some buddism
but just a touch
A little christianity
But not to much
Cosmic, new age, magic,
Meditation and such
Reincarnation
What's your latest crutch

I really love this poem. You made it rhyme in just the right places. It sounds like a dark chant or a song. I do agree with WriterMe though, the ending feels a bit 'sudden' and/or like you could and a couple more lines. Other than that, I think the poem is brilliant. Great job!

That was pretty intense. To me it sounded like good lyrics to a dark song. The ending of it seemed a little abrupt though. You might want to add a few more lines just to end it in a better way. Otherwise it was great =]
