No Exceptions



There are no exceptions.
We all experience,
Becoming them, they and the others.
At a time when rules and laws.
Are applied to our daily lives.

There are no exceptions.
Until some among the majority,
Refuse to accept...
A being no different than the rest of us.
Regardless of their status.
And the pretentiousness kept,
Of their effective delusions.

However,
There are some amongst us all,
Who stay a 'they' to remain that way.
With a taking their faith to perceive,
It can be merchandized to sell and disguise.
Done to throw kisses up to God.
In the hope their self righteousness,
God immediately recognizes.

And they take their 'faith' to actually believe,
It can be symbolize and idolize to make...
Heros of themselves.
On a daily basis to create.

They believe under steeples,
Where they assemble and congregate.
Only there God awaits.
For those who assimilate.
Together and not to segregate,
Into divisions making decisions.
Who is deserving of blessings to receive.
Based upon their color and ethnicity.
With imagining that God,
Approves also what it is they physically...
Can identify and see.

Not to know,
GOD IS LIGHT!
Brighter than any.
They have yet to have seen.

And...
Them, they and many others too.
Believe to do unto others,
With an evil hatred shown to be known.
Can be prayed away.
Sunday and throughout each week.
If they prayed to fake it faithfully.
Believing God forgives deceiving.

Even if their faith is faked.
Done to do to deceive and lie.
Hoping their image of themselves represents,
A physical image...
Of God to worship,
To idolize heros they create to symbolize.
With a doing to enforce no exceptions.
Upon the many eyes that are opened wide.
Knowing...
Who has committed betrayal and treason,
To feed and feast.
At their benefit to disqualify...
The truth to deny,
All of humanity as creations of God.
With no exceptions to accept,
Rules to follow and laws to obey...
Gives them, they or others of 'US',
To believe they have achieved a receiving...
Of immortality.
Above being touched to value reality!

'But...
We are not them nor they.
We are the 'Others'.
The CHOSEN ONES!
Here to enforce OUR beliefs!'

'I know.
It must be a sad existence.
To be in your position.
However...
As Justice of The Peace.
Who has been appointed by the people?
I can comprehend your mentalities.
I too grew up to believe in myself.
But on this planet,
My feet stayed to remain grounded.
Whoever it was,
That messed up your heads.
Should be found guilty as well.
But...
You know what?'

'No, Your Honor...
What?'

'Those of them,
Are not the Chosen Ones.
I find guilty for what they have done.
Congratulations!'

'Congratulations for what, Your Honor?'

'For your commitment to admit,
To be as stupid as you are.
And...
Leaving your fingerprints,
All over the proof and evidence of it!
Oh...
Yes.
By the way.
Would you happen to know this hymn.
Swing Low Sweet Chariot?
(singing) Coming for to carry me home...'

'No, Your Honor.
I can not say I do.'

'Well...
There's one coming for all of you.
Taking you straight to prison.
And it is my sincere hope,
You find the accommodations worth the wait!'
