By Rumple Oxbridge, liberal lyricist
A Reverend says that God has stated
President Trump can blast to Hades
anyone Trump thinks is evil.
The Reverend points to the Bible
to prove that killing by a ruler
is fine if the other ruler’s crueler.
This sort of Anti-Christianity
preaches it’s wimpy and downright weak
not to “take out” your enemies,
pre-emptively turning other cheeks
into ashes. Forget about the meek
inheriting the earth; God speaks
a newer Testament, a Gospel of
“America First!” So much for love
for we are blessed
living in our God-gated address.
Still, something there is doesn’t love a wall.*
And something’s wrong when Reverends are reverent towards war.
