Decrepit, By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @brianrrs37 on Twitter)

Sunken eyes
Hollow cheeks
Rusting at great depths

Ghastly tradition
Demanding submission
Obtuse stagnation
Abandons reason

A living corpse
Decrepit thought
No query found
To counter such

Abbeys and Imams
Clergy and clerics
Rabbis and priests
Rust in the past

Living relics
Exist as memes
In the minds
Of hubris gall

Frenzy of feast
On top they must be
Perverse justification
Compassion the victim

Pliable beings
Ambiguous strain
Manifesting into
Cults and religion

Abounding gallows
For the outsiders
Heresy’s doomed
To fill all prisons

Feigned and false
Taboo status
With flesh the cost

It creates skeletons
Insidious meme
Filling the chambers
Death to outsiders

Decrepit thought
Must be discarded
Replaced with reason
And cure of scrutiny.

Human rights are ALWAYS a given, including the right to follow any religion one choses. But like anything in life, religion should NEVER get a taboo status to never be questioned. Religion, is to me, simply another form of human tribalism which has the downside of setting up in group out group think. I’d prefer to think my fellow species is capable of reason as to not allow abuse to arise and violence to come out of religion. Thus I give no religion a pass on it’s group behavior or as individual claims. Our species has far more in common than the labels that separate us. Holy people only have the power over you that you allow them to have.
