Not By Choice

By Wiccad

You serve your god
Although unseen
Believing a book
Anyone could have wrote

You frighten your offspring
Dreams of hell and damnation
Should they lie cheat or steal
A kiss from the devil will seal the deal

Instilling the fear
That you yourselves believe
Giving the little ones nightmares
Beyond their beliefs
Shame on you and those who follow

From deep in the earth
You should be swallowed
Creators of fear and self loathing
Your childrens paths already chosen

Shame on your god
For hurting the children
Shame on you all
For now it has been spoken
