full of incessant prayers
what the hell does that prove?
ditches and trenches and bunkers
are filled with dead soldiers
who fought valiently for god and country

some survive
believing jesuspray saved them
which is tantamount to saying
"fuck the ones who died
they didn't pray correctly,
or hard enough,
or to the right god"

then onward they go
these self-rightous christian soldiers
testifying to their god's bountiful mercy and blessings

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


Onward Christian Soldiers, rings of the Sally Ann,
It is terrifying to me that in this day and age we send our young men to all corners of the world to Kill and be Killed in the name of something that never existed.
Fly the flag, I have walked in Salisbury Cathedral, (St Mary's) and there the flags and banners that many followed a long time ago, rot as they hang, from a bygone age where we learned of nothing.
I saw a banquet last night where all the government and hangers on went to have a slap up meal.
I saw a Food bank the other day where our poor people have to go, as yours that collect coupons for food..
Who did our young poor soldiers fight for ?????????
I am too old to take the Kings shilling, thank any deity..
Now see what you have done lol.
I am going to my cave and celebrate solitudes peace,
Yours Ian.T

NB:-Just a space needed here "believing jesuspray saved them"

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..
