Fanatic (With or Against)

Fanatic (With or Against)

A Poem by J. R.
"

We all know one.

"
We gotta change them
Gotta keep them clean
Gotta put them on the spot
Whether they like it or not

You burn hickory sticks
We burn heretics
You burn hickory sticks 
We burn heretics

We gotta be forgiving
Gotta love our fellow man
We got a chip on our shoulder
Gonna get worse as we get older

You burn hickory sticks
We burn heretics

We gotta be faithful
Gotta get purified
We gotta be docile and fit
We gotta swallow s**t

You burn hickory sticks
We burn heretics

We gotta be vengeful
Gotta learn to kill
We gotta learn to hate
We gotta discriminate

You burn hickory sticks
We burn heretics
You burn hickory sticks
We burn heretics

This is not criticizing religion itself, just the fanatics and bigots who use religion to do harm to others.

Hickory sticks and heretics... sounds like a rock group...

The "burning" intention is evident here. I'd speak a little more specifically about what your burning intention addresses, define the focus of your passion, don't deflect it.

I love the repetitive lines throughout, it seems like a really good rage song. I loved reading this.

Wow, you have touched this subject very well. I feel the same way. I like the rhyme, it flows so nicely. Very well penned.
