Man, Might & Divine Right

Many were proselytised

As the doctrine of heavenly inheritance over earthly aspirations thrived

So subdued they came to believe the lie

That their plight was by divine right

And that strife would be rewarded through the granting of blessings in the afterlife

A psychological exercise that would see their dignity further compromised

As it made poverty imposed with might seem justified in their minds
