The Whitman Inquisition

Leviticus 16:7-10

7     וְלָקַ֖ח אֶת־שְׁנֵ֣י הַשְּׂעִירִ֑ם וְהֶעֱמִ֤יד אֹתָם֙ לִפְנֵ֣י יְהוָ֔ה פֶּ֖תַח אֹ֥הֶל מוֹעֵֽד׃
8     וְנָתַ֧ן אַהֲרֹ֛ן עַל־שְׁנֵ֥י הַשְּׂעִירִ֖ם גּוֹרָל֑וֹת גּוֹרָ֤ל אֶחָד֙ לַיהוָ֔ה וְגוֹרָ֥ל אֶחָ֖ד לַעֲזָאזֵֽל׃
9     וְהִקְרִ֤יב אַהֲרֹן֙ אֶת־הַשָּׂעִ֔יר אֲשֶׁ֨ר עָלָ֥ה עָלָ֛יו הַגּוֹרָ֖ל לַיהוָ֑ה וְעָשָׂ֖הוּ חַטָּֽאת׃
10     וְהַשָּׂעִ֗יר אֲשֶׁר֩ עָלָ֨ה עָלָ֤יו הַגּוֹרָל֙ לַעֲזָאזֵ֔ל יָֽעֳמַד־חַ֛י לִפְנֵ֥י יְהוָ֖ה לְכַפֵּ֣ר עָלָ֑יו לְשַׁלַּ֥ח אֹת֛וֹ לַעֲזָאזֵ֖ל הַמִּדְבָּֽרָה׃

The Whitman Inquisition
by Robert Paul Gass (aka Imagines Vinco aka Ultionem Vinco)
The Sigma Chi Fraternity supports
The legend Constantine with God held courts
And prophesied opponents vanquished by
The cross in war.  As an old man he'd die
Away from battle's carrion fed flies
Begetting sons on consorts fed with lies.
A cross above the lintel symbol of
Self sacrifice when half breed Jesus' love
Of man meant crucifixion.  Essene deemed
Obscene by rabbis under eagle's rule teemed
With impotent resentment of sire's seed
Because meritorious Roman soldiers breed.

A playboy magazine by toilet placed
For a perusal by brotherhood chaste.
As Constantine's monastic soldiers fought
The sports the beer the turbos ever sought.
A cross demeaned by preps and jocks promotes
A social scene where gossip grabs bruised throats.
Once God with death did punish the seed spilt
By lonely Onan reinforcing guilt
Instilling fear of retribution
In the minds of harmless men.
Today the sin of masturbation is condemned by a creed
Which the pusillanimous Christian zealots read.

The duty of each Christian soldier right
Is persecution of aberrant light.
Perversion deemed obscene beyond sin's shell
Forever unforgiven Satan fell
From heaven bound for hell.  Each forms the cross
With index fingers crossed to expel loss.
The cross a symbol warding off the rays
That threaten hypocrisy of Christian ways
In which the Christ and suffering were replaced
By sheepish herd instinct and were debased
By cowardice of persecutors who seethe
Since the pusillanimous Christian zealots breathe.

A female's fear of Revelation's Beast
Fills churches with believers pure as the east
To worship God in male form fallen to earth
And accept miracles of virgin birth.
Fear renders females credulous to kneel
Submissive to the masculine ideal.
Fear causes judgement without courts
Saint John's prophetic vision cearly supports
The arbitrary whims of prejudice which perceive
The number etched on foreheads.  Flocks believe
In outer manifestations of guilt
Which the pusillanimous Christian zealots built.

The modern Christian limited by laws
Wield harassment and persecute the flaws
Of heathens with dehumanizing names.
Their stereotypes serve as hellish flames
To condemn faithless victims believed impure
And burn humanity at stakes as a cure.
Unlike Cassandra they merely believe
Suspicion's truth and use it to deceive
The flocks about the potential rape of Greece
While Troy is laid to waste.  They pretend peace
Is the objective of their wooden horse
The pusillanimous Christian zealot's discourse.

When Troy in ruins lay the gods forsook
Cassandra whom the lesser Ajax took
From altar of Athena wise who devised
Swift death for infidels whom she despised.
Poseidon smote the Greeks for damage done
To temples not for rape or battle's won.
Yuhova was believed to punish strays
With slavery to masters of false ways.
In Babylon the Jews blamed suffering
On past sins done.  Thus scapegoats offering
Was made and thus began the holy crusade
The pusillanimous Christian zealot's parade.
