Say Uncle

Posted on Updated on

Burned out houses, bombed out cities,
poisoned children cold and dead
make Us angry, here in heaven,
where it’s love of hate we dread.


With warnings and prohibitions,
Our proclamations We made clear,
yet you didn’t seem to care,
and scarcely seemed to hear.


We can kill with fire and drone,
from our far haven for the few,
all must learn to fear Us,
whether Sunni, Shia or Jew.

We’re all-loving, all-forgiving,
ever old and ever new,
If you hope to go on living,
do what We say, not what We do.
