Birthing Empires...

 Birthing empires can prove painful things    
this wedding of church to murderous thieves,    
their names matter not, Pharoes, Tzar or King    
they've no faith, stealing land is their belief...
     
In strange empires where sanctioned faith rules    
in conspiracy of priesthood and sword,    
each bolsters each terror reign on duped fools    
forced to believe their bible's ev'ry word.    
     
For sure they were force fed their killer faith    
ripped from innocence with fear poured in heads    
" You will do god's will " say priests " here on earth"    
" We teach his word, hark, or, be struck down dead!    
     
I've spied empire builders now, be damned,    
Lying, grifting, thieving, bible in hand.
