Four Worshippers Slain While Praying to God

What Is Holy
A piece of ground?
Foundations below a place of worship?
Years of struggle between two faiths?
Or is it the miracle of human life?
One small cell struggles before death
To unite and the miracle begins
Nine months later a human being
Complete in all its wonders
Complete in all its hopes
Complete in its soul
Life is holy!
What is sacrilege?
What is blasphemy?
What is apostasy?
Thou shall not kill!
On a holy site sacred
Or on any piece of dirt
Thou shall not kill!
Slaying of four worshipers praying to their God
By two praying to the same God of different name
While their brethren danced in the streets
As children so taught received candy and cakes
Is that not the most unholy act of all?
