Baptism

Every innocent baby
Is born tainted
New to the world
But on a direct path to hell.

A cold splash of submission
Followed by pictures and cake
Saves their blank slate souls
And fulfills a family’s societal duty.

The child has been marked
For indoctrination, brainwashing,
And conformity –
A fresh young mind donning chains and shackles.

Water should just be water
In a meaningless ceremony
But it becomes a deadly weapon
Recruiting for a dangerous army.

Let the well dry up
Let the children go free
Let’s defeat the army
That has imprisoned us all.
