IDOLATER

 

Blind adorer of false gods

Reckless idol-maker

Money maker

Power or fame

Grabby taker

Habitual faker:

Capturer, asset-stripper

Calculating captor,

And manipulating actor.

Captive for being vainly active;

Trapped in vicious disorder

Marginalizing the One and Only God

Sinking deeper into

Uncontrollable religious deviation -

A member of irreligious civilization.

Captive in moral lack of order -

Enabler of society's nasty disorder;

A punisher, executing a sentence on oneself

Inflicter of one's own pointless pain,

For the sin of impiety

And idolatry insobriety,

One is ill-fated relinguisher of hope -

In desperate need for favors

Of the One and Only Worshipful God.

Your poem is a wonderful web of variations in modern imagery visualizing the plight in the mentally titled society seeking solutions in gross materialism setting aside the spirit. A very well penned poem.

Idolatry? Yes, STILL ALIVE In the 21ST Century!

Another masterwork of poetical genius! Isn't it amazing how many millions of people out there right now have no idea that they are idolaters? I am so thrilled to read this poem and pass it on as a perpetual reminder of what we SHOULD be (followers of God) and what we actually are...grabby takers, money makers etc. Love the descriptions and fast pace rhyme.

As post note: Truly enjoyed my evening spent reading your work. I haven't enjoyed poetry this much in a very long time. God bless...keep penning out these great words of wisdom. I'll be searching for your gems and recommend them to everyone. A very grateful reader...good'ay Dr.Kardas
