******why is it so**********
Why is it so
that the god hid his oneness
why is it so
that he left the world to fight
The fallen mosque, the broken temple
the looted church and the slain monk.
Lost are the sacred idols of yore,
buried under the communal debris.
The clouded conscience of the spiritual merchant,
selling lessons of religious hatred,
to those learned unwise souls,
Their god is fraud, he preaches.
missing the oneness of it all
training eyes on the dual.
caught napping unknowingly forever
As the ages die and religions rise.
