The Original Sin

The thought that we should change the world

Is deeply embedded within those who purport this idea

The problem is that given human nature

Many of us have amnesia

The utopian society can never be fully achieved

The subtleties of our conditionality

Are often miscalculated

As predicted by our irrationality

Promises to the people

Only said to empower the ruling class

Many of them enrich themselves

Leaving us to watch them trespass

The problem lies within those who challenge

The religious moral teachings

Nobody gets even close to the Confucian, The Buddha, or The Christ

Let alone the others

And their beloved preachings

When men place themselves above

Herein the troubles begin

As told in Genesis

The original sin

Much is explained

When you look through this lens

Despite how you interpret

And the threat of the biblical cleanse
