Sacred Sites – Setting Sun

I am original

I am original

My prayer is traditional

My spirit is mystical

My work is political

Let me paint you a visual

Our differences minimal.

We’re the same metaphysical

One humanity-literal.

Because I am critical

Pointing out hypocritical

Your violence is physical

Yet you call me a criminal.

God’s linked to our rituals,

We’re not monolithical.

Our goals educational,

Impact economical.

Injustice is preventable

Much more than just regrettable,

Your crimes are institutional.

Your laws- indefensible,

You cover them up by using the confessional.

from pope to kings, ventures that were imperial,

caught in a killing frenzy that was hysterical.

500 years of rule-not hypothetical,

Time the pendulum swings the other way- it’s just inevitable.
