Warning: Religious themes, mentions of sexual abuse/rape, slavery, and racism.
The garden of Eden is full of snakes.
The holy churchgoers turn away the poor,
The abused, the women who have a choice,
And don’t have a choice,
All the while they cheat, lie, and steal.
The river of the blood and tears of the damned
Grows each day.
The Broken and Bruised stand no chance
Against the Patriarchy,
Their tongues are slit from their mouths
And as the blood spills it fills the bottomless,
Gluttonous, pit of the Oppressors.
There’s no salvation for them.
Only Pain and Misery.
