Powers That Be

To the powers that be. 
I've allowed you to view 
my weakness like an 
opportunity. Give school 
children fatherless 
babies, and preach their 
nudity to the 
congregation. Pagan 
prostitute purchasing 
pastor preaches to a 
godless nation. Commit 
adultery upon the body 
of Christ and a ct 
sinless. Thou shalt not 
eat of the fruit of good 
knowledge, lest thou be 
skinless. Take a wrong 
turn like Brenda and get 
hit by a bullet train. Of 
alcohol abuse, drug 
addiction, and mental 
strain. We don't live 
under the same sun. 
When you were 
wealthy, my poverty 
had already begun. You 
got to university, I died 
from hunger in Somalia. 
Because of my skin, I've 
become victim to 
sickness, AIDS and 
malaria. My protests 
end in bloodshed 
because of gunshots. If 
we hungered not to 
perish, we'd do nothing 
to fill those empty pots. 
String my wings with 
the chords of your 
swollen affection. Allow 
your Jacobs to rule the 
nation, they're the 
masters of perfection. 
Your nation of rapist 
gay men has narrowed 
the country's vision. You 
sodomize my sisters in 
your office,under cop 
supervision. You molest 
my brothers and torture 
a nation. Kill my spirit 
entirely, and resurrect 
an evil nation.
