Punishing the Innocent for the Guilty

Oh tell me, if you will how in the hell you are helping yourself
When you punish the innocent for the sake of the guilty one?
Or have you begun to realize your mistake in taking this path?
Unrepentance, essence of wickedness, menace to godliness . . .
You reopened your door and let all of it walk across the floor!
Do you remember dedicating your home to God,
Where evil would no longer be allowed to roam?
But the poor and chaste you kicked out the door,
And the score went to the devil, who just laughed all the more;
Do you not realize that God cares for his poor, helpless children?
Are you not wise enough
To apprise this situation
Made by your abjuration?
There is no cessation in how the Shepherd cares for his sheep!
He laid down his life and paid the price so they might have life;
Do you not think he will avenge his love in the blink of an eye?
Now your ‘home’ feels cold and unfilled,
Unfolded from hands and bold presence;
Yes, it is like walking into emptiness, unfriendliness, deadliness;
Except for the spirit of resistance and persistence in oppression,
So many spirits unholy haunting and taunting as if in a cemetery;
Oh, the pain of the change is enough to disarrange and derange!
Such divine anger is danger uncovered
And cutting in absence of his presence!
Fear is creeping in so near, though so surreptitiously, viciously;
You may not notice quite yet but you can bet he is here now, too!
And all of this because you punished the innocent for the guilty,
‘And his blood cries out from the ground’ is the sound to God!
