No Friend of Mine

I would slit every one of their throats

If it meant saving even one of you.

How ego-centric humankind must be

To believe that God placed kin on this

Earth for the sole use of humankind.

If there is a God,

I pray to him for your swift and painless last moments,

If not survival.

But if there is a God –

And his instructions be true –

Then He is

No

Friend

of mine.

Amen.
