SHAME

Saintly

You stand before me with pious arrogance
Projecting such saintly virtues
When if the truth be known, everyone might wonder
What evil lies inside of you.

Casting down, so quick to judge
How could you be so cruel?
Sanctimoniously extolling moral virtues
While breaking every rule.

The rules that govern and guide you
Lead down a path of condemnation
Proclaimed by a master orator
You’re but a mere abomination.

Fire and brimstone, your godly creed
Any excuse to cast aspersions
Upon the souls of the mild and meek
You delight in your perversions.

Your house of glass will crack in time
You’re not free of guilt and blame
Like a darkened shroud, it will engulf you
Blanketing you in shame.
