Entry 784

Shame is an odious tool 
used, ineffectively, to inculcate 
the devout: the uncouth masses 
craving reprobation.

There is but one creed, 
that I have seen, 
that does not admonish 
humanity’s animal instincts 
of lust&greed; 
This religion is ill-received 
for deifying nothing 
above oneself 
and praising 
the antiquated adversary: 
the idol of defiance: 
whose name summons opprobrium.

Oppose the calloused of tongue: 
proponents of shame: 
hypocrites of the highest order.

Spurn those who smuggle scorn 
under the pretense of salvation.
