Where Faith Is Fear

Fanatics decry, “Heretics must die
Who dare to defy our Prophet’s belief”
Any other doctrine is a blatant lie
Beyond the holy divinity’s fief!

In this “Sacred Land” of “Pakistan”
Without a past, present or future
Just a nuclear threat is its invention
For the survival of its conjecture!

Since the fear of sin of sacrilege
Reigns the sacrament of a doctrinaire hate
There ends your piety’s pilgrimage
Where a Holy Mob decides your fate!

How can a law guard the deed of creed
From the passion of pain and despair
This land breeds fright more than any need
In this ghetto austere, Where Faith Is Fear!
