A Case Of Double Values


The love that dare not speak its name
Will cringe in nervousness and shame
While hypocrites pour scorn and blame
On the love that dare not speak its name.

'Good' people always will deride
The sinful thoughts which they've denied
Till criminals have wept and cried
In the face of so much Spiritual Pride.
