Where our problem lies

Where does our problem lie?
Where does the devil dwell?
Are Christians in a trance?
The world is being torn to pieces;
Under our watchful eyes;
Or are we saying we do not see?
Who does not see the fire
That hell is spitting out
On the world?
Who is not aware
Of the blazing flames?
The world is rife with produce
From the devil’s farm;
Aren’t our leaders worse today
Than the tyrants of old?
Human slaughter houses
Have geometrically multiplied;
Humans are massacred like cattle
Or buried alive;
Neighbours at war,
Fighting and killing,
And dumping neighbours in pits
Dug behind their homes;
Who talks?
Don’t we hear
And see these atrocities?
Can we pretend not to see?
Aren’t we authoring them?
Where is the Devil’s dwelling place?
Our hearts.
Who feeds and nurtures him?
Hypocrisy is devouring
The world.
Shall we stop him?
Or shall we let him go on
Till our human race is wiped off?
We preach virtue
And practice vice.
That’s where the problem lies.
Can’t we stick to the right,
And shun the wrong?
That is our challenge;
To cast pride and greed
Into a bottomless pit;
To keep falling
Never to walk the earth again.
