As some one once said “Religion is the opium of the masses”
In some rural english village town hall, the clinking of sherry glasses.
“Well Cynthia we’ve raised a grand at the church jumble sale and here’s the proof”
“It’s great Daphne now we can contact the reverand about fixing the church’s leaking roof”
Meanwhile in Iran
A gay man
hides behind the sham of a marriage
and dreams of a post islamic state, a new age
I was 10 when the Ayatollah swept to power
I saw him preaching on my t.v .thought he was a dodgy fella
I was proved to be right after all.
Meanwhile back to the village town hall
Slides of a recent pilgrimage to Jerusalem
To the very rafters they’re packin’ ’em in
The action switches to northern India
Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims still fighting over Kashmir
Will this world of ours ever know peace?
Only if we cause religion to cease…
And as for politicians
Send them all to prison
So there you have it , from some dreadful child abuse scandal
In Rome’s Vatican halls
To judgemental acts and persecution
Brainwashing and divine retribution
That is Religion in a nutshell, my friend
Let’s hope in the future it will all come to an end
I’ll have a drink to that.
