In God You Trust…

In God We Trust, Political Poetry, Truth Keepers, Satire, Hypocrisy, Nations, Holy Bible, Guns, Irony

In God, you say you trust
as you quickly strap your guns,
the Bible in one holy hand
the smoking gun in the other

You are the truth keepers
with your mouthful of lies,
you pick verses that serve your purpose
your hypocrisy goes beyond the surface

The grandiose self-titled peacemaker
who steals and poisons others water,
you go where the land is rich
and live its people in misery

In God you say you trust
as you decimate nations of natives,
that God of yours is very testy
I doubt he’s the same as mine.

  1. Whoa!! Preach Sister!! Yes it is like there are two different gods. Theirs the god that maimed, murder and stole the Native Americans lands, kidnapped Africans for slavery, instituted Jim Crow and Apartheid, colonized and ruined native populations and/or nations worldwide. Their god who condones lynching and the right to have automatic weapons which have made America #1 in mass murders but their god believes health care is a privilege and not a right.

    Really makes you wonder about people who call themselves Christians. Thanks for these hard hitting words.

  2. “We must cease striving and trust God to provide what He thinks is best and in whatever time He chooses to make it available. But this kind of trusting doesn’t come naturally. It’s a spiritual crisis of the will in which we must choose to exercise faith.”

  3. Powerful poem, Jacqueline! I’m American and identify as a Christian, but I strongly relate to your message; I must believe in a very different God than these people. Well said!
