Angels Conscripted

The sins of religion,

religion of sin

holding God hostage,

a prisoner within


An Almighty weapon,

inflicting great pain

heaven in bondage,

redemption in chains


The politics of religion,

its dogma a curse

with guilt as the wellspring,

all heretics thirst


Angels conscripted

the devil awaits,

for those who would question

—with hell as their fate


(Dreamsleep: April, 2022)
