Others are men
And then there are the gods
There is no better Hell than Earth, after all
Dante's circles were inadequate
The Bible has it wrong as well
It is not fire and flames that burn
Love is our best torturer
For, what else can make us twist and turn?
Earth has vices that keep us obese
Yet we still talk of Angels and Miracles...
How, then, are Innocent animals abused?
Anyone physically weaker than men
We become prey so we can pray
Prayers to the Devil still produce hope
And misplaced faith still brings purpose
Even amidst the horrors of Hell
The hounds, licking our heels
As we spin like tops on a collective axis
We gods have our hands full, you see
There just aren't enough of us left
Earth was Heaven
Until humans evolved
Didn't take you long to ruin the planet either...
Noble savages indeed
The only Saviour today is the written word
You've murdered everyone else we've sent
In the same way you've suffocated Honour
For the sake of Greed
When you damn someone to Hell
You give them eternal life...did you know?
No other species
Can create a wasteland with such efficacy
That alone is impressive...
You will have your way
And, your day
That's why we gave you Love
Not to give you pleasure
For pain...and lots of it
The alternative is to rise
Higher and higher
You all have wings, you know
I gave them to you myself
But you plucked your feathers for gold
Now, you have gravity, too
It weighs you down
You, and us
Enjoy your fun and games
At least, while you can....
