Aquisition by Inquisition

by Kim Rich

Age Group: Adult



Priests came in robes of red,
washed in the blood of the Lamb.
Their path was marked by the dead.
They came to judge and damn.

Washed in the blood of the Lamb,
Priests burned the infirm and old.
They came to judge and damn,
to purge by horrors untold.

Priests burned the infirm and old,
birthmarks and moles as signs,
to purge by horrors untold,
to fulfill material designs.

Birthmarks and mole as signs,
witches judged and made to stand,
to fulfill material designs,
to gain valuable land.

Witches judged and made to stand
frightened, naked, alone,
to gain valuable land,
for The Church to call its' own.

Frightened, naked, alone,
they stood in public disgrace.
For The Church to call its' own,
they were buried, no marker, no trace.

They stood in public disgrace
without hope of any salvation.
They were buried, no marker, no trace,
with the Pope's holy sanction.

Without hope of any salvation,
their path was marked by the dead,
with the Pope's holy sanction,
priests came in robes of red.
