All Suffering Is Our Own Fault

Six days of Creation,
So the human tragedy commenced.
All suffering is our own fault,
So we have been convinced.

God soon came to realize,
That creating humanity was a mistake.
So he murdered all the bad people,
In order for a new humanity to make.

There were many innocents who suffered,
God drowned children, and all the babies.
But all suffering is our own fault,
No ifs, ands, buts, or maybes.

The perverts of Sodom,
At the door they came a knockin’.
Hey Lot, send out those two men,
And let’s get this party a rockin’.

But righteous Lot, he was a cool one,
He did not for a moment lose his head.
Said, please do not do this terrible thing,
Here, rape my two daughters instead.

But God would not allow these two virgins,
To lose their virginity at this time.
So the overzealous perverts,
Right then and there went blind.

Then God told righteous Lot,
And Lot’s wife, ole what’s her name,
To get the hell out of that place,
Said I’m serious son, this ain’t no game.

Gonna torch this sinful city,
Rain down fire and brimstone.
Don’t even look back,
Time to just BE GONE!!

But ole what’s her name,
You know, righteous Lot’s wife.
That sinful woman looked back!
So, God took her life.

Made an example of her,
Turned her into a pillar of salt.
We don’t know her name,
But “Remember Lot’s wife” we ought.

All the people of 60 cities,
Were killed, not a single person survived,
This pleased God you know,
Call it righteous genocide.

Besides, you cannot blame God,
When children and babies are murdered.
All suffering is our own fault,
No need to rationalize further.

Just like when Joshua’s men,
Killed children and babies with the sword.
All suffering is our own fault,
This we know from God’s word.

And those Midianite virgins,
Who Moses allowed to be taken as sex slaves.
Their parents and brothers Moses had murdered,
Because God did not like how they behaved.

But you cannot blame God,
When virgins are raped and sinners are murdered.
All suffering is our own fault,
No need to rationalize further.

Phineas understood how God grieves,
When a mixed marriage takes place.
So he murdered them both with a spear,
To keep pure their religion and their race.

Its a bummer when bad things happen,
Babies drowned and slaughtered and .killed.
But all suffering is our own fault,
Even when it’s in accord with God’s will.

Six days of Creation,
So the human tragedy commenced.
All suffering is our own fault,
So we have been convinced.
