Originally published on December 14, 2012 in Song Lyrics

The poor in spirit thrived



The poor in spirit thrived
got a little inspiration and died
a million deaths
cursing every breath
wishing they were still dead

The mourners mourned
just so they could be mourned
instead of being scorned
as they set up their next free meal
signed up to the devils deal

And the meek just turn the other cheek
like they've always done
under the blistering sun
as they stand at the grave of their chidren's children laying the wreath
just staring into space waiting to inherit the earth

Then those who hunger and thirst for what is right
shout from the roof tops and can't sleep at night
as they chase the devil around in this hell
guided by a light that only they can see
their souls spewing from the rancid smell

The merciful give out life to their captives
like they're the allmighty
like they're above the law as they sharpen their knives
they give it out every second thursday
so they can bargain it again and again for mercy

As the children who see through pure eyes
are corrupted by their fathers vengeance
play with God asking for his defence
as they struggle to their feet
with a future they've yet to meet

The sons of God are cruxified and reported to the police
as they bring you the message of love and peace
looking just like you and your sister
you wont believe your ears
it's easier to love satan with all his pain and tears

And you when you stand up for what is right
you will be laughed at and scorned
by drunks and followers,who'll be blinded by your light
they'll bring you down,cover you in their mess
but you,yeah you, will be blessed

I'm not sure this was what Wizard had in mind! There are some powerful ideas and images here and I particularly like the lines -
"The sons of God are cruxified and reported to the police
as they bring you the message of love and peace "
Good stuff, Roy - John.

Well that just about writes off the whole of mankind in one poem. I'm not sure whether this achievement is a triumph or disaster... or in knowing to which scrapheap I belong " I found this poem interesting despite that. ... Bozzz.
