When Irreligion Wears

When irreligion wears a righteous mask

it privileges itself, precariously,

to take that, which daunts it the most, to task;

and in its stultifying style of prose

reduces Faith, and others it deems foes

struggling (and doomed to fail) to nullify

those ancient virtues it feels threatened by,

and calls for all, attending, to deny

to them the process of civil discourse;

and to compel them into dispossession

of that precious freedom of free expression.

This ultimate human hypocrisy

proves irreligion's foul degeneracy,

the base rockbottom of its perfidy.
