Hostages By Tradition

People lack simple knowledge
caged birds flying free; they swallow
the watered-down gospel, sugar water
flavored to perfection. The believers are drowning
in quicksand, hostages by tradition,
readily accepting the garbage as they lovingly
get fed like cattle, no questions asked.
