Bastard Jesus

from by Burdens of Misanthropy



An orphan raised by acquiescent slaves,
our bastard was no stranger to hardship.
Condemned to endless labor in the name of their savior,
amassing wealth in Western pockets.
Bearing splintered hands and notched teeth,
the gifts of subjugation and his father's disease.
His life was the product of sick, self-righteous greed.

This child will be the one to free them
from their rapacious priest.

He will replace
the Messiah that they've begun to worship:
Jesus Christ.
On his flesh they'll no longer feast.

Enter the witness of the new savior's corrupt conception:
His mother's father, of cloven member
disclosed the horrors imposed by the church.

It's all a clever ploy conceived by wealthy men
to deceive, distract and destroy the poor whilst force-feeding malevolent sacraments.

Behind closed doors, the afflicted did meet
to conceive a ploy of their own.
They will make their captor weep.
Amidst the sermon on the coming sabbath,
gruesome revenge will be exacted.
