The Seven Deadly Sins, are said, to live
Within the breasts of Men, within the Sins
Dwells Man, I say, protected by clerics
Ways of keeping tame humanity’s kin.
The Seven Deadly Sins begin with words
Of colored rainbows span, lighting Vegas
Fantasies to bleed the souls of true chords
Reach, muting truth with glitter, leaving less.
The colors ‘tween the two remain, shafted
By Pandora’s name, evoked by selfish game
Creating false, mutating beings - crafted
With abilities to maim all-who-came.
Rainbow-Sharp consumes itself, now to tell
How Seven Cosmic Virtues will foretell
Future Past and Presently, no more Hell.

|From the prologue to The Jew of Malta by Christoppher Marlowe
"And let them know that I am Machiavell,
Admired am I of those who hate me most...
I weigh not men and therefore not mens words,
count religion but a childish toy
and hold there is no sin but ignorance."
I love the phrase "within the sins dwells man," and it is so true, we should not be ashamed of being human.

This composition is a laser-Sword cutting the web of indifferent minds suggesting them true freedom.
"Rainbow-Sharp" has sharpened my ignorance cutter.

|Aw, if it were only so. I have to admit to liking a little sin from time to time, but those deadly ones, I try to steer clear of. Good.|
