    People. (Everybody dance now)

    People bloody people
    Of which I am not one
    People f ucking people
    Silly tubes of food
    With silly ideas
    Baby Jesus
    Allah and Mohammed
    People bloody people
    Of which I am not one
    Earnest self aware
    F ucking people
    Flicking their hair
    Lies in their eyes
    People killing people
    People with a gun
    Of which I am not one
    Men with base ball caps
    Women with painted eye brows
    People bloody people
    Here's the church and here's the steeple
    Sinners condemning sins
    Saving the world with coloured bins
    Fellating hallowed words
    Shopping in Wallmart
    Giving birth to do it all again
    Snotty reproduction
    Parents sh itty parents
    Recreating people
    To die and do it again
    The bloody departed
    The grieving masses
    Of which
    I am not one.

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.

    This is a GREAT poem.
    Well done.
    Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty

    Good stuff. I agree with Kiz paws. Love the directness, the language, the message, everything really, especially the slightly delusional "Of which I am not one" refrain which adds a touch of cynical humour. (My favorite kind)

    Thank you all. And yes Tailor that was the song.
