So much that is written in the Book of Exodus
If people read the Old Testament,
They would be shocked at how insane,
Are the laws that appear there.
But one part of Exodus is vital:
This is the justice
Our western society denies.
... If there is serious injury, you are to take life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.
Exodus 21: 24-25
The enemy sees America as weak
And this is why it is true.
Western society follows Christian rules,
And not the original laws.
Forgive and forgive and forgive
No matter how horrible the crime,
We keep on forgiving evil -
And so it thrives,
And the innocent suffer.
