Addressing the Preacher

Helen Ward, had the same mind 
As George Orwell, I trust this to be true 

May be separated at birth 
But never on their essence of being 

Today frogs and their cohorts 
Stand on ceremony, demanding to be addressed 

I have long protested the arrogance 
And dishonesty of politicians "pigs" by George Orwell 

They make me sick to live in filth, plastic waste 
And demand to be called honorable 

But even for them, oh even with them, I spare 
I spare, for they are as politicians are 

I have come to associate them 
With a type in character, set on position 

The pontification frogs of this nagging address 
To this picture caption Helen Ward graced me with

Claim to hold holy his name 
And abuse their position on holy grounds 

They pay no taxes and con their way 
Into the pockets of the poor and vulnerable 

Offering miracles at a price, for self fortune 
Self anointed kings of the religious domain 

Quick to curse and doom any that question 
To the hell fire, "You do not question a man of god" 

They use their relation with their church members' positions
To threaten any that question, I have seen it happen

Helen Ward had the same mind as George Orwell 
To see these frogs with loud voices quoting scriptures 

They rob from the people they are suppose to free 
The Shepard who sold all his sheep to the cheapest bidder

  5. you see many things that most choose to ignore..
    "They rob from the people...." is so true in both politics and religion.

  6. Echoes my thoughts, the false prophets of our times, devoid of humanity and compassion.

  7. Those who blindly follow have a few screws loose. Question everything and everyone.
