The Perverse Intent

from by Burdens of Misanthropy



I have arrived.
Enshrouded in my guise:
Altruist, noble man.
Unscrutinized, I perform the deeds of the devil.

Call this my holy war or whatever it takes for you to endorse my cause,
I'll soon have these savages adoring me.
Witless heathens, they will regard me as their god.

I've come about your land at great expense
and I'll be damned if there's no return on my investment.

You will belong to me.
Oh yeah!
With vicious force I will alter your reality.
You will convert
and feel the everlasting love of your eternal father
come and feel the light,
bow to the will of your abusive shepherd.

He hath bestowed me with the right
to purify you with the crucifix,
decry your cultural heritage.

Succumb unto the will of the lord.
