Evil crept into their midst.

As they worshipped, partied, sang
As the bells of Easter rang
As children laughed, lovers kissed
Evil crept into their Midst.

Condemnation from on high
Politicians, church outcry
Ignored by those who perpetrate
Fueled by ideology, ignorance, hate.

Is there a way to treat this snake
Their poison not our spirit break
Atrocities we must prevent
Rid our world of this torment.

J. Poet 7 ( @wordverse.me )
