Thieves then

So militant
and violent
and persistent
and extreme

These are the cries of the evil ones
they spew hate and scream
of their lives
as better, as more worthy
and good
as they murder, salute, indoctrinate
without their hood

This is the face of hate
this is the face of pride
of those not needing to hide
such menacing, sinful
and threatened young men
the face of sin
and darkness grim

They are lost and corrupt
as we all once were
but woe to these men
who continue to walk
in servitude, as thieves then
to the image of God
and man alike
they serve themselves
only ready to strike.
