We, the people

 

Our religions are tolerant, we're intolerant
Our religions are spiritual, we're materialistic
Our religions are forgiving, we're vengeful
Our religions are dynamic, we're stuck
Our religions are unbounded, we're parochial
Our religions are open, we're closed
Our religions are liberal, we're conservative
Our religions are giving, we're hoarders
Our religions are magnanimous, we're small minded
Our religions are frugal, we're ostentatious
Our religions are humanitarian, we're fundamentalists
Our religions are egalitarian, we're hierarchical
Our religions are about living, we're about words
Our religions are the best we wanted 
To be, and could never be
And then, 
We are proud of religions
We hate religions
We love religions
We blame religions
We thank religions
When we should be
Looking
At what we are
And what we should be
