The Burning Times

by Silver Lotus Moon

Age Group: Adult



There was a burning smell
and a darkening stain
coming from the streets--
remnants of the work of God
or so they said.

After all, they knew what He wanted,
knew that God was not a She
so that they upturned
all that had ever been believed

back before the advent
of their male sky-God
who ruled with an iron fist
and advocated the murder
of the innocent.

This is how these things came to be--
women, ruined by men
who worked as witch-hunters
for profit
all while retaining
the male sky-God mouth-piece's approval.

And this is how their religion grew:
by taking out the "heretics",
the "witches",
and the "sorcereresses".
These deserved to die
for the crime of belief

in a faith that existed long before theirs,
but they, in all of their ignorance
ascribed to the latest trend,
the latest fashion--
and wiped out those who dared to wear
the clothes of yesteryear.
