An unethical coalition of Church and State,
An old, corrupt lifestyle for traditions sake.
Unelected leaders to control the elected
As the Irish attend parliament, kneeling on pews.
God becomes our education, regardless of belief
Twenty-first century legal brainwashing of infants.
The free nation State, still caught in bondage.
“This is a Catholic country”
The nurse tells the dying Hindu woman.
A government that sends “thoughts and prayers”
To the suffering abroad in empty packages.
Weekly church attendance is school attendance.
A population sent to the confessions boxes,
Because everything we do is a sin.
Atheist outcasts, questioned for questioning
Encouraged to fake faith, for the sake of another
Catholicism comes first in this hierarchy.
Call this oppression a form of modern democracy
As the personal is taken from a person’s religion.
Believe what you may, but keep it a freedom
A law for the chosen people, not the land.
