Religious Harmony: Excerpt

if I hear one person
ask my religion
and think that one or the other
would shape and define
my worldview
i’m gonna flood his people
kill his firstborn
burn some witches
and have him drink
at a separate water fountain
because I’m a real Christian
just like you

this zionist guy tells me
my grandparents were just
as persecuted as his grandparents
by the Muslims in Palestine

last i check it was Jewish rifles
held against temples
that dispossessed Haifa and Yaffa
Haganah, Irgun, and Stern Gang
bombings and massacres
that formed an ethnocentric state
that didn’t recognize
Muslims or Christians as equals

not gonna have some values preaching
hypocritical House Rep
tell me what’s wrong
with all those Muslims
maybe I’ll start listening
when he stops
starving Jesus’ poor
aborting Balck and Latino lives on death row
and overstepping homeless people
on his way into Whole Foods
