It is hard to free fools from the chains they revere
Also read: Meeting God.
To the doll’s little blue plate;
No, stop, child, cries,
Serve round table, from the right,
Use red spoon once, silver thrice
And Teddy doesn’t eat veggies on Sunday;
Dad smiles, kids and their games, humor them.
Man at play, pompous,
Amidst ringing bells;
With millions seeking, source unverified
And billions dragged to ways helplessly.
Off with shirts, three laps round here, bow,
Purity, he says, don’t eat meat on Saturday;
And amidst chants, the clink of money
Dropped in fear, lack of sight, into donation boxes;
Thus “God” pleased, and his agents rich.
Let me be clear, I have no problem with religion, as long it’s a private affair. But religious institutions: that I don’t like. If you pay for a pizza and it isn’t served to you, you have obviously been cheated, right? What about all those people who dole out thousands in temples for better fortune and see no change in their life?
