Can't remember quite when this was written, some time around 1999. A few thoughts on the intertwining of religion and morality.


Was Hitler Really My Father?


Buddhism, Sikhism, Hinduism, Islam,

Corners of the world and the corners of your mind,

Judaism, Daoism, Catholicism, Voodooism,

Corners of the world and the corners of your mind,


If I’m feeling vulnerable, religion is a cure,

If I’m being raped, religion is a fallacy,

If I’m feeling unlucky, then religion is to blame,

If I’m on my own, religion is the answer,


But if I’m feeling vulnerable, then love will make me safe,

If I’m being raped, then strength will supersede,

If I’m feeling unlucky, confidence is my aid,

If I’m on my own, determination will help me succeed,


So are emotions a product of actions?

Or are actions a product of emotions?

And is religion a product of weakness?

Or not a product at all?


And is Jesus innate in Gandhi, or was Gandhi just my mother?

And is Shiva innate in Florence, or was Florence just my healer?

And is Allah innate in Theresa, or was Theresa just my sister?

And is Buddha innate in Hitler, or was Hitler just my father?

Was Hitler really my father?
