Poem - Smoke or Bullets

The poem “Smoke or Bullets” is about the tools used by cult-like organizations.


Smoke or Bullets

Smoke or bullets both prevail
when applied to the slaves
seeking more than they have
still denied by master’s whim

changing minds with tempting lies
evangelism turned to Satan’s cause
leading most to their knees
worship granted to the lords

those not twisted will submit
to the force commanded there
dogma bent to pacify
demanding fealty or slow death

this shared foundation will result
in converts to the cause
once entranced they will stay
pledging witness to their fall.
