Crime & Compassion

by Zafar Shaikh

I cannot grasp this bitter truth,

That men have sold their souls to religion,

Oh how I wish they could see in spirit,

The God that existed before these myths.

When truth became so propagated,

It fell into hands sorely untrained,

I watched them rape this virgin story,

And birth evil children to spread the plague.

There is but one God, and I his messenger,

and so are you, oh followers of love…

Compassion is the only religion,

One we surely fall short of.
