    Easy Practitioners of Another Voodoo

    While I was counting the cost of steak
    And while depressed about her over weight
    He was counting grains of rice
    She was forced into a life of vice

    And while the self righteous contemplate
    Judgement day is a “next” meal “day” maybe “today” ( to late )
    And the Judicial reprimands of “Burning Hell” are made
    In the easy sanctimonious litany wealth

    Bigots of the easy excuse
    Sticking pins in those who have “no choice”
    Easy practitioners of another voodoo
    With punching high hand and waving bible

    And while my tiny world revolves on petrol
    And my tiny mind rumbles counting cholesterol
    Their tiny portion evolves with racism
    Their tiny lives end in starvation

    This western ideology of comfortable supremacy
    In this augmented and cosseted luxury
    Of billable hours and ever enhanced entertainment
    You sit back, just relax, and wait for the “Judgement”
    Of voting and squabbling over opinion
    While children “die” of malnutrition
    And as my fast burger gravitates to the better bigger
    It gives me the blind ignorant swagger
    Of a bully in a play pen

    Ignorant fool of devotion
    Voodoo representative of a “Jezebel” nation
    Indoctrination of the “money” dogma
    Is our only inkling of our own propaganda

    What dirt ? What Sorrow ? By life have we suffered
    Have our hands buried children we Mothered and Fathered
    Or have we forgotten how to identify
    “And there, but for the grace of “God” go, “ I ”

    While I was deducting the account of living
    They were drawing water and smiling
    And the pious sat back waiting for “Divine Wrath”
    But those people knew what their water was worth

    Easy practitioners of another voodoo
    Sticking pins through the bible
    Into those who have “no choice”
    Bigots of the easy excuse

      This stanza in particular shouted out to me:

    "What dirt ? What Sorrow ? By life have we suffered
    Have our hands buried children we Mothered and Fathered
    Or have we forgotten how to identify
    “And there, but for the grace of “God” go, “ I ”"

    I feel and agree with your anger, but in this world where money and politics and social status rule, what opinion are we entitled to? A very little one, if any at all. At least you have the courage to speak your mind, commend you for that.
