The Real Freemasonry

By Geoff Fox

2004
Many a man has asked the question
What is Freemasonry?
Is it a club or some devilish cult,
Full of conspiracies?
Some would have many to believe,
From lack of facts or deceit, 
Freemasonry is filled with corruption
Standing at Satan's feet

That we band together in our buildings
To perform unholy rites
With sacrifices of goodness knows what
To satisfy Satan's delights 
And we ride the goat and fund the terrorists
And we're into major crime,
Brain washing the world to join our sect
Whether old or in their prime.

One must ponder these synthetic slurs 
To the origin of their source:
Perhaps it is fear of the unknown
Or a vindictive course
Maybe it's a generational thing,
Could be a religious view-
Whatever the case, it is totally unfounded,
Flawed and viciously untrue.

If only they knew of what is inside 
Also of what is taught,
Then they would see the truth of it all
And of the man that is wrought.
Taking a good man and making him better
Is the motto of Freemasonry,
To serve his God with humbleness
And fellow man in charity.

A belief in one God, is absolute!
From this we will not sway
'Tis the first step to our brotherhood
For those that seek the way
We accept all men - from all nations
Colour, disability and creed-
Honest, just and upright men
Are proper masons indeed.

Furthermore the emphasis
Is on priorities-
Family first, then comes work,
Finally Freemasonry.
Numerous lessons can be discovered
In charting the route of life:
If followed - stands a man in good stead
After his mortal life.

With principles so pure and so worthy,
May the slanderer's hand be thwarted!
Let truth prevail above all else-
Freemasonry, be ever supported!
