Thou shall not worship false gods except Me

Sacrifices in form of bull and goats
Are no longer rendered on the temple
On the mountain as of old
As the gods now walk
In the feet of men

They permeate hearts
With the evil wrath of thinking
gods are only in the statutes
Made with silver and bronze

They snatch hearts of
Total love for the Creator
Bending their hearts to created things
Burning unceasingly with passion for it

Power, Money and Entertainment
A thing to enjoy the mind
Has been a stature in
Homes all around the universe

People now bend heads to it
With lips in praise of anything
That pours its wine
In their hollow hearts

This has cripple minds not to see
These things as a means to foster
Our relationship with the Creator
Rather than going down the
Pipe with it
With Shattered homes everywhere
And men licking wounds wildly
In the thorns of the wild fire

I have my fears
And deep worries
Concerning the hearts of many
Bowing day and night
to these gods
Not realized in the day of our time

As I meditate on
Under the shades of my room
I think of the sacred words
In the holiest book ever written

Thou shall not worship false gods except Me
