Poem: We Did Not Go Quietly

We did not go quietly into the Night
We did not go quietly
Husbands killed sons
Mothers killed daughters
Wives and husbands
Sisters and brothers
All slain for the sake of One God
Blood spilled
while temples were desecrated
Destroyed
Shrines dismantled
Or re-purposed for a New Religion
It brings shame on any
who disrespect any God or any Goddess
It does not matter if They are yours
All Gods deserve honor
All Goddesses deserve honor
All Holy Powers deserve honor
Just as people do
Respect the Holy Powers of others
Respect the Holy Powers of yourself or your kin
Blessings flow to those who give respect
Blessings flow to those who act with honor
Respect the Holy Powers
Respect yourself
Act with dignity
Act with elegance
Respect yourself enough to respect all Gods
