Radio crooned, what if god were one of us?
Question a somewhat older pop song asked.
It makes me wonder, what if god is all of us?
And we fail to notice, since we all go masked
Still, we tell ourselves we know only truth,
everybody else only playing make-believe.
But don’t let anyone ask for concrete proof;
facts trotted out will slip through your sieve.
Unctuous crusades, jihads and all genocides,
all wars and death they caused, that is the sin.
Claim that where we live is where god resides.
Kill for faith, by saying what god believes in
Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
