God does not live in Bible pages
Yes, your Koran cannot be his house
He counts not rosaries, nor habits images
Clanging bells and murdered cocks only arouse
The owner of the shrine
Who is the owner of the shrine
If not the pastor, imam and prophet
Who sell ‘god’ for the coin in your pocket
Blinding you to the God in you
That voice, whispering deep inside
Quietly, when you do and refuse to do…
He is God, the true God you already denied!
