Winding river, you are full of stones
Each covered in the blood of hatred.
Claiming to do as God commanded
You are false interpreters of the Word,
Stoning humanity into submission.
Under the guise of love you preach–
Conversion or death your message.
Yet in Heaven your Gods are the same,
Your aggressions on earth intertwined;
Surely there is enough blame for all.
Look! Your Holy texts are riddled with violence,
Deaths of men, women and children– so graphic;
Still you have the gall to point fingers at another!
You hypocrite, you heathen, you betray yourselves!
Each of you should be stoned for your digressions
You perpetrators of hate and death.
None of you are without human frailties,
None of you can claim to be speaking for Almighty God
For that–would be blasphemy,
Yet still you proclaim to know what is in God’s Heart!
Put an end this senseless bloodshed,
“Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”,
And nary a stone will ever be cast again.
