Pretending Morality

What is the virtue

Of mercy and forgiveness

On who will it rain?

We live as gods deciding righteousness

Who walks with God?

I fear this even as a concept

I am to stupid to know

Trained by moral philosophies

Ad agencies and psychologists

Behaviorism, free or manipulated

Everything about ourselves

Do we take the time to understand?

I am rambling about precepts

Fundamentals of love and growth

Fearing a violent backlash

Good or evil, the soul is sold

(Unless we do have free will? In which case, quit hurting people dummies!)

When they come a marching

Doing what we know

I learn from the fear of God…


Love is in your hand

Or can be, if you’ll drop the knife…
