God and his fuckwits

why is it that religion and illiteracy seem to go hand in hand?  
almost always spouted by some young man    
who hasn’t lived long enough    
or travelled wide enough    
to know    
that what he knows    
aint knowledge    
not like the stuff they teach in college    
but merely a cultural expectation    
which, if he was born under the flag another nation    
would have led him to feed off the tit of some other religion    
and he’d have oh-so-reverently believed that shit    
as hard as the shit he thinks he ‘knows’ now    
but somehow    
they just keep coming on    
being wrong    
forgetting that the first lesson was love    
and if there is a God  
above  
‘He’ fucked it up  
if only because ‘He’ chooses to speak  
through the mentally weak  
who forget that religion travels with conquerors  
and slave traders  
so what you are hearing these young men say is  
(and here is where the real grey line is)  
they love the god that was whipped in to their elders, long dead  
when really they should be worshipping another god instead
