You'll never see such a zealot as those who claim
Their zealotry's done in a god's holy name.
For those who would harm in secular cause—
Whose greed for power leads to secular wars—
Eventually fall as they're shown to be liars;
Are tested in Earthly and visible fires.
But those who aim for the sweet by-and-by
Say their proof is in Heaven, their pie's in the sky.
No check's close to hand, to balance their claim,
No cost's too high, of death, fear and pain.
No Earthly reason can temper their acts—
No test in this life will hold them to facts.
Their Paradise trumps an ocean of blood
Spilled in God's name; a Biblical flood.
