Holier than Thou ( Literally speaking…)

He hides behind the Church.

Trading Bible verses to suit

his needs and shield his

greed, hate and selfishness.

Replicating different meanings to

confuse gullible unsuspecting folk.

Juggling words out of the Sunday

sermon to pass judgment to those

who do not conform to his perception

of holiness.


His truth is embroidered in marinated

lies told after dark.

That’s when his true nature reveals.

A man with a split personality, vile

tongue spitting venom after a few

hours of indulgence.

Taking words out of context,

misinterpreting information

from the Bible.

Using twisted texts and publications

as a yardstick to discriminate other

people who society has labeled outcasts.


He boasts under the shredded veil of


Gloating under a dummy self gratification

while oppressing and mistreating others.

Wallowing in hate but quick to quote the

scriptures and defend his contradicting


A wolf in sheep’s clothing, a hypocrite

misusing words in the Bible.

Playing divine, throwing stones and

passing judgment on others like

he is without Sin.


He developed a superiority complex,

created his own throne in Utopia

and put everyone who doesn’t resonate

with his idealized notion of perfection on

a pedestal to be despised, segregated

and used as reference.

Calling them Inferior, unfit and unclean

to touch his bleached cloak of greatness

and holiness.


Ignorant to the fact that we are all imperfect.

Closing his mind to the fact that God is love

and doesn’t discriminate anyone.

Holier than thou attitude perking his ears up.

Running his mouth like a bad case of diarrhea

and treading the side-walk in an over sized suit

with an aura of perfection like he’s the best

thing that ever walked on the face of earth.


Drop your dummy crown, fool and practice

what you preach! Stop treating others like shit.

A little kindness, respect and Love would suffice.

You are not immortal!

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love poetry...art, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
