Sacrifice without Mercy
Mercy without Judgement
and Judgement without Obedience.
“Hotheaded,” is what they call him,
with smoke from his ears and fire in his eyes,
he judges without mercy and everybody cries.
The whistling politician
shows mercy all around,
gives suckers to the children,
throws nickles on the ground.
In polished shoes and collar high,
the Reverend guards his lair,
to keep the little foxes out
while bedding down the bear.
