In Whose Name?

Changed the title of the poem, I think this one is more fitting. Listen to Bob Dylan’s – with god on our side … that song and a few others inspired me to pen this poem

mikesnexus

the evil that men do

in the name of a god

is not in god’s name

but rather

evil enacted

in their name



hypocrisy prevails

in whose name?

some faceless god?

no…….

just greed

and the face on the lucre



the victorious

the arrogant

the ungodly

there is no god of the righteous

only the greedy

might is not always right

but greed trumps



"in god's name"

is now a lament of regret

what have we become
