mistakenly believed he only need stand
declaring he held a true map to The Better Way
Ah, but They killed him off, didn’t they?
While we gathered round to numbly watch
our voices dumb with Nothing to Say.
If you deny freedom
for one who thinks unlike you
by erasing all reference to before
through cancellation of any future
by obscuring the sky from view
allowing only perpetual cold
separation from light
prohibiting realization of human potential
what right have you to believe
one deserving of respect
a worthy messenger of the Divine?
