The Virgin Peace

The Virgin Peace

Again they celebrate
The coming of the name
For some far to late
For others all to blame

Hailed in Peace
The Angels own word
A wolf dressed in fleece
Not peace but a sword

Hailed the new King
By Zoroastrian Magi
The Jew king they sing
Whose word will not die

If you think I come to bring Peace you are wrong
Not Peace but a sword never written in song

Come to prove the scripture in words
Said all we have is Faith Hope and Love
But asked and was given two swords
And to be abandoned by God from above

Taught us to judge not so not to be judged too
Yet at death raised one to Heaven another cast to Hell
The hypocrisy of the word is so see through
And all profit raised to those who can sell

So again they celebrate the coming of the Lord
To suffer and die for the sins of a man
To offer you Peace at the hand of a sword
To unite to divide as only the word can

And all gather to the Synagogues to be seen
Forgetting the Truth as if the Teacher has not been
