A compilation of stories to teach people to live together in peace.
Your book of stories
Your book of glories
still just a book my friend
I've read it twice
from end to end
Taken from it a truth or two
or seedlings of truths
if I must speak true
For Horus or Jesus
Muhammed or Moses
it's the lessons taught
and the words outweigh the speaker
do they not?
10 Commandments
Psalms and letters
preached in temples
by men our betters?
Somehow I doubt
that a God would need
so much sacrifice
so many to bleed
Thus I stand by my first impression
this book of stories
is just a book of lessons
nothing less than a way to be
not the Word of God to me.
