The Religious Hypocrisy by Jude Chukwuemeka |Poetry |PAROUSIA Magazine


Religion is religion
So stick to one,
If you are a traditionalist
stick to it,
If you are a Christian
stick to your faith
If you are a Muslim
embrace your faith.

Then be faithful to it
Be diligent in service
Let your deeds and works speak
Why mock others?
Why despise others?
Why judge others?

Why will your prayers be answered?
When you sin and smile
You admire her lips
And lust after her hips
You adore her breast for a decade.

The king of kings is watching
Amadioha is smiling
Allah is silent,
Judgment is coming
Every man must reap what he sowed.

Fake prophets and prophetesses
Why religious commercialism?
Why spiritual gymnastics?
Native doctors in suits,
Shrines metamorphosis to churches
All are signs of end time.

If you are called, you are called
If you are fake, you are fake
Signs and wonders convince a carnal
But the tyranny of time exposes
them all.

Why the holy lies?
Why twisting the holy books
in your favour and disfavour
their hearts,
They struggle to eat a square meal
Why you fly in the air.

Then confusion sets in
Family members at war
He said “your mother is a witch”
Ancestral agwu at work,
Division and disunity mock them.

Shepherds eat their sheeps
Prophets and prophetesses milk us dry
Why not sit and think?
Retrieve your steps
The enemy is within.

The Creator will chide all
No wicked escapes judgment
Hell is broad,
Heaven is narrow
Heaven and hell have its properties.
