When you’re a seeker and you can’t trust the preacher,
Hard to listen if all you’ve been doing is talking,
Can’t learn from a novel if you refuse to read,

Humanity drowning while the world is falling,
Busy preaching while you should have been learning,
Nobility gossiped while experience told lies,

Using the wrong tools; the world doesn’t need fixing,
Blaming the environment while products of engineering,
Two ends to the same sword held in the wrong hand,

Not spelled nor singular; complex in all forms,
Easily turned into hatred producing violence,
Coincidence using faith as scenery,
