Beware Of False Idols (A Cautionary Poem About Breaking The Second Commandment From The Holy Bible)

You shall have no other gods before me
You shall not make for yourself
An image in the form of anything
In heaven above
The earth beneath
Or the waters below
You shall not bow down to them
You shall not worship them
For I, the Lord your God
A jealous God
Punishing the children
For the sin of the parents
To the third and fourth generation
Of those who hate me
But showing love to a thousand generations
Of those who love me
And keep my commandments

- Exodus 20:3-6 (New International Version)

Beware of false idols
Beware of all false idols...

...because the road to hell is paved with good intentions

Hollywood is nothing but well-calculated psychological manipulation
Deceiving the masses that all you need
Is talent and determination
And you could become an A-List celebrity
A star that is bankable and has credibility
But nothing is ever what it seems to be
Entertainers receive their charisma
From channeling demonic spirits
Masquerading their witchcraft as God-given talent
It is Satan - not God - who they believe is sacred and holy
Whether it be from “The Satanic Bible” by Anton LaVey
Or “The Book of the Law” by Aleister Crowley
These A and B-List celebrities
These false deities
Are recruited into freemasonry
Spreading their wicked messages
Through feature films, theatre, radio, studio albums, and T.V.
Hidden in plain sight
So no one can expose them for who they really are
They will always have their fans to defend the curse
Simply because they are stars
Failing to realize that humanity
Has taken a turn for the worse
The fans have engaged in the very activities
Their false idols promote

The curse that is gratuitous violence
To make wrestling as harmless entertainment
Even family-friendly for every home
But not in the eyes of everyone from the WWE
They are turning America into modern-day Rome
Desensitizing their viewers with rehearsed violent acts
It will soon manifest to more graphic violence
The same way Nero the emperor
Threw Christians to the lions
Feature films such as “Natural Born Killers” and “Basketball Diaries”
Homicide is seen as glamorous
And even a twisted, dark, but beautiful fantasy
Until the shootings that occurred in Columbine, Virginia Tech, and Aurora
It became an everyday person's tragic reality

The curse that is crude language
Spewing profanity and obscenities
About everything and everyone including family
Constantly cursing and mocking the Lord's name
Because rappers and comedians have absolutely no shame
It's merely the nature of their demented games

The curse that is rampant sex
Paris Hilton
Jenna Jameson
Kim Kardashian
Pamela Anderson
And Karrine “Superhead” Steffans
The 5 modern-day whores of Babylon
Pornocopia's “Desperate Housewives”
Infamous for spreading lust to man's soul and heart
As well as spreading their private parts
And sucking certain body parts
Indoctrinating young girls
That in order to get ahead
You have to give some head
Young boys who watch p*rn*gr*phy
Will be brain fed that women should be treated in such a way
And while he's with his girl on a date
She screams and pleads for him to stop!
Because he is now committing rape

The curse that is excessive drug use
If a celebrity gets arrested multiple times
For cocaine, heroin, or cannibus
Their punishment of substance abuse
Is rehab, probation, or community service
But if an everyday person is caught with drugs
There will be no second or third chances
That person goes straight to jail

Actors, p*rn stars, and recording artists
They are not the only deceivers in Hollywood
They also come in the form of media tycoons
As well as writers, directors, and movie & music producers
All seeing themselves as God-like crusaders
For social reform and pop culture
In their selfish, prejudice image
To make all of us look like robotic, lifeless vultures
Mercilessly untying the fabric of society
With their exploitation of mankind's depravity

Nothing is ever given without a price
From living the fabulous celebrity life
For there will be sacrifices
Beginning with your privacy
To your ethics and integrity
To eventually… a friend or a member of your family
When one makes a certain amount of money
If you speak out against “The Powers That Be”
Your fame, wealth, and life will be in jeopardy
There have been far too many freak accidents
For any of them to be called a coincidence!
From Whitney Houston's drug overdose
To Michael Jackson's homicide
To Kurt Cobain's suicide
If one dares to step out of line
He or she will be “taken off the freedom train”
An inside industry code meaning
He or she will be murdered!

The deadly sins that are wrath, lust, greed, envy, and pride
May satisfy one's superficial wants
But will eat one's insides
Until he or she becomes the living dead
Still desiring to be in their false idol's stead
Neither words nor laws rule the world
But instead by masonic signs and symbols
That will put you in a subconscious trance
And to be in the receiving end of their mind control
For when you leave this Earth
Satan will steal your eternal soul
As Lady Gaga says to her “monsters”;
“I don't want your money! I want your soul!”

Beware of these idols
Beware of false celebrity idols

A person that has no conscience
Believe they will suffer no consequence
A person who lies to God subconsciously
Will lie to themselves and everyone else consciously
When one believes that he or she is above spiritual law
That person will believe that others are small
But like the Holy Bible says;

Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

Proverbs 16:18 (NIV)

Beware of false idols
Beware of all false idols...

Because the road to hell… is paved with good intentions

Ke Andre Bell-Washington

(October 24th 2012 - March 8th 2013) The time frame in which I was a member on poetry.com. A website that consisted of poets, demonic trolls, and out-and-proud prejudice bigots. I have revealed all of the good, bad, ugly, and inner beautiful in equal doses in both myself and others. Because I did that, I am now loved and loathed by the entire community in equal doses. The best way to comprehend it is some people want to hear the ugly truth. Others would rather just stay asleep inside the matrix of mental slavery. I'm not going to describe my poetry here. I'd rather have my material speak for itself. With that being said, I want to thank the following people who were there for me as friends and those who are loyal dedicated supporters: Paul Harmon (my brother in Christ), Gareth Jones (my #1 fan), Mark Porter II, Willy J. Williamson, Becca Wedge, Shama Javkar, Joey Jones, Peter J. Brown, George Nosis, William Charles Schuler, Vladimir Bass, Michelle Borel, Jordan Goodwin, Dm Rumberger, Sara Irizarry, Donka Krsteva, Ashok Babu, Helema Jones, David Abraham, Nick Adegwe-Oshomah, Divya Nishant Ranote, William Hollingsworth, Maria Shaw, Norman Wilson, Tejinder Singh, TJ Hatton, Juliet Ligon, Gracey Sanders, Ging Alburo, Christina Peskowa, Dave Ratcliffe, Tom Kennedy, Isaac Rodriguez, Ahmad Al_khatat, Abid Saleem, Farida Amin, Taylor Rose, Roland Ediare, Sarah Spohn, Andreas Evangelos Vanezis, Debbie Krieger, Michael Gonzales, T.o. Differential, Wishu Sindhu, Paul Kurland, Jeff Shafer, Oliver Sherman, Elizabeth Winters, Dale Raymond, Lynette Mack, Saroj Khan, Frances Hime, Frank Chidsey, Andy Lyle, Kimberly Ertsgaard, Aryan Choudhary, Sandra Meadows, Faye Lee, Bong Herbert Guitang, Alice Morani, Donald London, Rosalie Hobbs, Euvela Higgins, Andre Smith, Marco DaJuan, Amegha Sahni, Karl Stuber, George Collett, George Meighi (better known as Haiku Artist), Sam Mac, Colleen Ruiz, Jon Otano, Wallace LaBenne, and Gabriel Mican. They all were the reasons that I stayed on this website 3 months longer than I was initially planning to retire. They kept my name alive with both their praise and constructive criticism. I will forever remember it!Of course, I want to thank all of my haters, the demonic trolls who thought they were torturing me with their two and single star reviews, and most of all, the now ''Eight Stalkers Of The Apocalypse'' (Richard ''The Pinocchio Poet'' Acevedo, Yvonne Sensing, Elizabeth R., Calvin Carter, Lee Canham [a.k.a ''Seven And A Half Sheeep And A Chickkken''], Clifton Redmond, Dana Moon [whose real name is Lyn Pi], and the newest stalker, Kristin Ell). I am specifically naming them because they all have either trolled on several of my poems, wrote hateful rants directly about me (and even posted some of them on my pages), made up false allegations against me, pretended to be a friend of mine (but was exposed as a duplicitous, narrow-minded follower), or have made racist and/or homophobic comments against me. In the case of the The Pinocchio Poet, he is a closeted Nazi. These people are wolves who will devour anyone for their personal pleasure, with the exception of Yvonne, Clifton, and Kristin. Those three are wolves in sheep's clothing. They are the most deceitful of them all. Watch it all unfold as you look at my poems one by one.Thank you all for reading this summary. I hope you it informed you, as well as entertained you. TAKE CARE AND GODSPEED!!! more…
