The Parable Of The Wolf And The Lamb.

 

We are the men of peace, they say,

we hide in plain sight of you all

taking their innocence away.

 

We simply ask that you will pray

for those who sin and those who fall.

We are the men of peace, they say.

 

We ask for penance every day,

we prey upon the week and small,

taking their innocence away.

 

We look after the waif and stray

who come unto us when we call.

We are the men of peace, they say.

 

Where unsuspecting lambs will lay

the predator will creep and crawl

taking their innocence away.

 

In shadows where the children play,

beneath the twisted cross they trawl.

We are the men of peace, they say,

taking their innocence away.
