Sometimes I wish that there was no religion

It’s not exactly like I subscribe

People everywhere are tearing their hearts out

Over someone else’s diatribe


Somewhere there must be reason

Can there not be common ground

Why is it that simple feelings

Become something far more profound


Tin soldiers and Nixon coming

We’re finally on our own

Forty years and we’ve learned nothing

Countless opportunities have been blown


Come on people it’s time to believe

It is time to believe in all mankind

A higher power will assist you

It really matters that love is blind


This is not about picking winners

This is not about choosing foes

It’s more about dark sunglasses

And the guide dog who trusts his nose

Itís not exactly like I subscribe

Organized religion seems to be doing more harm than good these very sad days. Although it probably has done more harm than good throughout mankind's history, causing many bloody wars.

Probably why I prefer to do my worshiping in the great outdoors, not in a man-made church.

Any kind of dog to guide me through all the worlds tripe would be most welcome...(tripe = kinda like the stuff I write, huh?)

Great words to live by, Patrick, and so well said. Problem is, their higher power wants those that believe in our Higher power dead, and they have so many that are more than willing to oblige.
Hope that it's not too hot for you at this time.
Your friend, Mark

Love of our fellow man is blind and guide dogs don't lead us astray.

Brilliant, Patrick... I'll follow your credo, believing in that Higher Power who, if necessary, goes on all fours, carrying someone else's burden... hmmm... where have I heard THAT one before?! :)) I believe the trouble is not with God, but in what man has made Him. He made us One and (wo)man has caused the division. This is really good stuff - in content as well as tightly delivered form. Great! xx

A great message in a beautiful rhyme.
It seems that humanity IS running out of time
And our poor world is worse than blind.

But there is hope.
