You say that the saints are good

But there are good saints

In fact, some of these saints

Are the biggest sinners of all


Why do we celebrate their goodness

And ignore the vilest of their sins

What of the fact that we

Are no better than they


The saints are nothing more than human beings

Yet we cloaked them with stars

There are no good saints here

Only flawed, wicked men
