  • The pulpit's standing empty, the congregation's left
    Because to qualify for piety, they had to pass a test
    (Q:) How much "roughly" is your god worth to you?
    (Q:) And if he said, "Lay down your life for me," could you give that too?

    And will they never understand
    That the future is in man

    The priests, when told of starving kids, look on in mock dismay
    While thinking of new ways by which to make religion pay
    Money from mass misery? There's nothing wrong with that
    The church holds out a bloodstained hand to pass around the hat

    "By the pricking in my thumbs
    Something wicked this way comes" (Shakespeare)
