My reply to The Cost of Religion thread

Because of God a people slept
For God they conquered
Mothers wept
For king and country under God
Over they innocent they trod
Yea, there were those to question "why?"
In public did those people die
God gave the rulers holy right
God's armies show his righteous might
Asleep the people yet remain
For God forbids an active brain
Until the day the people wake
Free thought will sizzle at the stake

Wonderful poem! As always, you are elegant in your imagery. And the title is very evocative. Good job, sweetie!

Ha, Judith, I know what you mean!
Couplets make for musical language, yeah?
