Religious Abuse

Posted on Nov 15, 2011


So it’s in the news again
Reaching these shores
Catholic schools we do vent
Our anger as they break laws

Religion is hidden behind
When kids are abused
Not much is done we find
The kids and families lose

This disgusting thing very wrong
Been going on for decades
Kids, now adults hide the past gone
Hoping for it to fade

But this horrible thing goes on
And on, unchecked and noticed
Until one day someone before long
Is caught in the act and punished

This though goes on in all faiths
Catholic schools get noticed most
What child you wonder is safe
From their protective hosts?

I hope and pray for the lost souls
The one’s affected by this evil
That they can be at peace and again whole
From the hidden religious, but human devil
