It matters not from whence you trod,
Adorned with trinkets or topaz,
No man or woman ever has
Slain another in the name of God.
No court or rogue or firing squad,
With paperwork or heartfelt prayer,
In person or some distant lair,
E’er did slay in the name of God.
Oh rhetoric! Oh great facade!
They try to sell neath blazing sun
Absurdities that can’t be done:
To try and kill in the name of God.
