Let There be Darkness

Are charity and goodness obsolete?
God's hand stays not the killer's bloody blade,
and commonly, those men who steal and cheat
are first in line to find their fortunes made.
Is kindness merely vanity in 'drag'
employed to lend mere men a Godly air?
Or brotherlove, another way to brag
how good men are, when most, in fact, don't care?
What oddessy or Life surpassing goal
is worth the tortured quest to live upright?
What earthly certainty assures the soul
that scarifice and pain will lead to light?
Belief does often double as a dream,
Hard facts don't lie. Curd does precede the cream.
