Your god.

A man spoke to me on the corner
and asked my to a really great bible meeting.
I replied, enthused
"Does Jesus talk to you too?"
Yes, he said, all the time,
"Oh great I said, when do we start?"

I have the guns and bombs,
we kill the buddhists, muslims and jews
and blow up unholy abortion centers!"

He back-pedalled, dissembling madly and ran,
I was confused, for a moment, then shot him.

God's message is clear,
he is the only one,
with sidekicks holy ghost and son,
so all the rest must go.

Our test is to help him on his way.

He uses the big ones,
acts of god,
earthquakes, floods and hurricanes to punish the heathens,
worms in African children's brains
we do the mopping up.

Come join me sons of God,
onwards christian armies,
marching to the war.

And lets not forget the kykes, methodists, presbyterian and other perverts,

The mopping up operation will be swift and bloody,
and we will be saved

Hallejula! Lord male master on high!
I stand by your right hand, holding it gently
and let you sodomise me.

And of course we must pray for the suffering,
whatever an interventionist god causes.

It's for your own good.

Beautiful discussion of God's omniscience,
may I,
ENTER
the reality of the myth of god.
Who is god?
a corrupted form of good,
some guy knew little English
and spelt good as god.
He was thus himself so blessed,
upon his soul all did rest
peace came from within,
if with goodness one did begin
a mutual existence,
with utmost reverence,
co- exist the good god would emerge
from within us naturally.
Then we all shall become
symbols of immortality.
God who?
Jesus, Buddha, Ram or Krishna,
Guru Nanak
and of course Allah,
would as of then, even now,
continue to become eternal symbols
of love all as a singular one.

but when you try to write seriously you make a fool of yourself. You don't have to be smart to be a poet, but you do to speak anything but crap.

Adorable piece of writing! Give me a gun......I'll shoot myself! Way to go Jess! We are a horrid species and we invent a g_d etc because we need to feel important - well some of us do! In reality dolphins are more intelligent than we are! Humankind - my f*cking arse! HumanNIGHTMARE more like!

Great writing!

A great story of the greatest mase murderer . I just don't understand why he is worshipped if death is his MO.
Then I think, Jesse James, Al Capone, so on and so on. We always romantizes a killer. Isn't it interesting, so why not the greatest of them all.

I happen to agree with Lenny of Cohen on his views. I think religion was invented by man as a salve to spread on the mind to relieve the fear of death. If the Christians turn out to be right about a "God" then he, in my estimation, is an @sshole! I like the same lines as Kelsey pointed out. Brovo on this brave write!

Upon his white stallion and a sword of truth at his side
of it is he uprising doing the last battle before the great peace...

Just wondered where your name came from, something like a strapping youth or man, a person born to bondage, I can't seem to find an origin for the name unless a cliché here God Forbid it comes from Jesus.
I think I shall take the first origin and it could be like born out of slavery lol

A short strap fastened around the leg of a hawk or other bird used in falconry, to which a leash may be fastened.

You really did go to town (cliché) on this one and I like your rendition of a rant

So can you see him as a robbing gunslinger like our Robin Hood

Like this one seems we have a way of making death easy, rather than to suppress the majority for which I think maybe it was.
Who could read and write and kept it to themselves until about the 1500's??

Esker says
god shall return
Upon his white stallion and a sword of truth at his side

I would love to see this, a beautiful White Horse and rider just like the Crusades hope they have a big Red cross on the shield and coat. lol
Just see it tanking down the Motorway or looking for a parking space on the M25

Jess seem's like most people have lost that old time religion and feel the way you portray, this is a grand write and all I can do is comment on the comments as they are another poem in their own write (pun).
You take care out there, Yours Ian.T

.
There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

The priests and monks kept reading and writing to themselves as long as they could. I would suspect that it was because they wanted to portray God as they thought he should be. Also it made the masses much easier to control. ~ Geezer

Jess Your God
"and asked my to a really great bible meeting." asked my to?

This makes me smile as well as not, as my naughty father invited
JhW's in, the young things, and then; he having had an all round
father with a 'proper' thorough education, the Bible on one side
and a dictionary on the other, of the dining table, when all the family
would be gathered, father at the top, and mother opposite;
then he got an extra education outside school,

well, as I was saying, he invited them in and then at each quote
they came with, he counter quoted them, until they left rather embarrassed.

I need him/Roland, to answer you here.

Religions have created so much misery/discrimination,
if they didn't exist,
but then they do.......

people need someone, something to lean on,
I don't think they do,
but that's what they use God for,
someone to take the blame for wrong doings etc.

I don't see why one is scared to die,
why?
Its the passage of nature.
Suffering is something else, that is worst.
When I die I cease to be, its almost beautiful,
like the leaves of trees.

Amen. We don't need to know any more.
Ann.
