false requiems

abstract ideas are vaguely accepted
yet, when tested
all semblance of tolerance
is lost amidst the anger
the "sin" of it all
explained in terns from
an accepting, loving man
morphing into high morality
the refusal to accept anyone's values
yes, bathe in the blood of jesus
and pronounce his tenderness a sin
and in his name
kill the faggots and the heretics
and the witches and whores
burn them all until you don't remember
that behind closed doors
you are just the same.
