A Time To Heal

Religious intolerance spawning violence continues to stalk the land
It is time for humanity to against it and its violence make a stand
A place of worship, a church, mosque, or synagogue should be a safe haven
From all manner of shooters and bombers who are completely craven
In Poway on the last day of Passover a small butcher’s bill
Only 3 wounded and 1 killed
In Sri Lanka 8 bombings killing 359 Christians
By jihadists on a Paradise one way ticket mission
In Kiwi land in 2 bombings a butcher’s bill of 29
Muslim innocents cut down by a heinous crime
1 shooting or bombing creates the need for revenge inflamed
No matter how many police the waves of killings are not tamed
Hard for Christians to be able to turn the other cheek
When their elimination from even the Holy Lands the jihadists try to seek
Too often from the imams only the sounds of silence do we hear
The chasm between the religions widens and will not disappear
Time for religious leaders of all faiths to forcefully teach
Killing another of a different faith means Paradise or Heaven you will not reach
The Paradise or Heaven you have in sacrificing your life have sought
Will fail and go completely for naught
A jihadist will find the gates of Paradise blocked
Condemned to eternal damnation with pigs as a shock
Christians and Jews will find the gates of Heaven closed
Into Hell and the fires of Hell across their souls for eternity to blow
