Monsters walk the earth in your name
with flocks aligned without shame
to the masters born of men
thought to speak without sin
by declarations the die is cast
to ensure the cause will last
beholden to only power’s grab
there is no difference between good and bad
it’s not enough to serve the day
instead the masses are asked to pray
that generations will feel the yoke
now condemned by the words spoke
faded edicts stooped with age
cherry-picked to the dismay
of targets not of the flock
those decried to matter not.
