Cult of Guilt

Cold  
is the facade of a heart
pretending the part
of the glorified shameless
 
Dark  
is the silent pathway
for a truth only told partway  
and the shadow-lust, nameless  
 
Dirty machines  
clean everything grey
tarnishing natural innocence away
even the newborn can't be called blameless  
 
Unclean  
is the standard wolves of the flock keep
as hell’s burning brands gobble the sheep
in malevolence most aimless
 
Oxymoronic  
saints of sin in constant sport
their games of penitence the cheapest sort
with an acquired nature they couldn't tame less
 
Status  
of such ones requires constant sin
the self righteous never want the antidote for sin
Slavish evil is the counterfeit wealth of the infamous
