The Spurious Religious Books

The spurious religious books is their autonomous constitution
And the temples hereditary fortification;
Mortifying the colonized all to fortify the cleric all.
Through mantras' wall
They evoke all and curb
And that then cause the fall,
Not in an imaginary heavenly orb
But in the devilish superstitious hall;
The devil waits there in its mysterious hell
And thus, becomes the cause of fall of all.
Priests are the supreme judges;
And the words they evoke cause the great blow
Not to their flow but to the humanitarian glow....
They perform tantras with heavenly laws of mantras;
And clasp the human hearts in the superstitious hearths.
The priests are swindlers and the devotees clients....
To be silenced meticulously in the religious muck
Where they perform the ritual and tuck
With the doors shut
Eyes closed
And rays kept out
To pursue the dark dusky den of religious authority
That curtails the entire humanity....
They perform the ritual as they acclaim it is the authority high
And that then the entire race fie...
The so-called earthly gods haunt the brethren;
Shackle them permanently in the religious chain
Where they over the unquestioned authority,
That is vain...
The god is called great and the priest greater
As they fetter the human beings in their religious shutter....
Where the priests run their certified trade...
And rise higher as per their religious grade.
They are earthly gods
And to worship them is the unquestioned duty of all...
They are the foundation of religious autocracy
And the ladder to caste hierarchy
They are bhondu in the name of Sadhu;
Smeared with ashes
To bonfire the clashes....
They have colonized the mankind
To obey their order
And maintain the religious hegemonies ladder…
