I WILL NOT BE A PART OF THE SHAME
by Andrew J. Müller
I am not a religious man
But I am what I am what I am
Yet some will condemn me for what
They believe I am though I'm not.
I do not follow Christ's word
Though it's what I've mostly heard
No false expectations upon my head
No assumptions my Bible's well read.
I am not a devotee of Islam
I don't know the Holy Quran
But it does not imply to me
That the Palestinians should not be free.
I am also not a Jew
That is a fact - that is true
But just because that is right
Does not make me an anti-semite.
It may be that I'm also not black
But that is no excuse to attack
Me for what history has done
To the people who lived under the sun.
I do not understand Buddhist meanings
Despite my hippy leanings
It's all too obscure and obtuse
To convince me it's any use.
Hinduism has too many Gods
For me to follow the lot
I am not likely to become a Sikh
In this or any other week.
I do not follow the Pope
But that's not a crime I hope
For I am not a religious man
Though I am what I am what I am.
So no Holy War in my name
I refuse to be part of the shame
And when this all blows up in our face
Will any God help the human race?
