Christian hypocrisy in the 9/11 Epic Poem

The Following is an excerpt from chapter 8 of the September 11th Epic Poem. The rough draft was written between June 2008 and May 2010. It is 2,000 lines long and has 1,499 rhyming pairs.

The lives they lead are full of greed
            Though simple they may be.
The times they spend display a trend
            Of living pointlessly.
And though they’ve missed they still insist
            That God controls their lives,
But those they tell they’re doing well
            Need only ask their wives.
They waste away their lives of clay
            When diamonds should be there.
Whose polished grace reflects through space
            The colors in the air.
The Christian life should not be rife
            With mutant lusts and needs,
But when it’s true it sparkles through
            With truly selfless deeds.
The human soul is dark as coal          
            With greed and vice at length.
Although it longs to right its wrongs,
            It somehow lacks the strength.
But those who vowed they’ve been endowed
            With power from above;
Should represent, with drive unbent,
            God’s mercy, peace, and love.
For through their eyes they’ve seen the lies
            Of money, sex, and fame.
For they as well had dreams of hell
            While struggling blind and lame.
But when their fate became too great
            To face in flesh alone,
They hearts were saved from what they craved
            By power not their own.
