chance of a lifetime…

chance of a lifetime

step right up
and
pick
your god
we’ve got some
with
formal names
like
christ
mohammed
buddha
jethro
just
to name a few
but
there are
a lot more
for you
to
choose from
you might want
to
invest your existence
on
capitalism
communism
nationalism
or
just plain old
narcissism
keep in mind
that
some
come with
an extended warranty
for
everlasting life
while others
offer
return tickets
from
behind the veil
of
death
however
the ftc
has not
validated any of these claims
so buyer beware
also
please note
that
the god selection process
may not
provide you
with
a rational explanation
for
an irrational existence

security blankets…

did you see them kissing

gods and demigods
offered man’s prayers and votes
an unstable world
man’s blind faith and allegiance
due to insecurity

all saints day…

now
as you
may
have noticed
my attendance
at the save-your-soul dealership
could be
classified
as a rare sighting
that point aside
i have
been wondering
’bout something
seeing that
i’m no theologian
i was wondering
given your attendance record
if you could
shed some light on something for me
here’s the rub
i read in old days
those barbaric pagans
had lots of gods
each one
prayed to for
different reasons
or because of their tribe
well
i’ve noticed
folks have a lot
of different statues
that they pray to
instead of directly
to god
why

if there is justice…

the blood
you have spilled
shall form the walls
around heaven
barring your entrance
and paving the way
to hell’s brides
behind each
of the seven veils
you shall find
the rotten corpses
of the women
you have slaughtered
like a hungry dog
you will  lick the heels
of hate
curl up beside
the most damned of life
your prize shall be
to trade places
with those you’ve killed
and the pain
of their death
shall be yours
over
and
over
again
may
the gods
make
it
so

this dream…

is not your reality
but it is reality
i am a jaguar
moving through the jungle
of your consciousness
i am a shaman
healing the pain
within your heart
with herbs long forgot
by those
who cut the heart from the palm
and tossed it into the sky
creating the moon
the dust from its flight
formed the stars
in the night sky
my breath
created the night breeze
that gave flight
to the owl
that grasped within
its claws
the last fragment
of hope
that man
would save
this river
and the lives
along its shores
with the same mercy
shown to him
by the gods
themselves

political jabberwocky…

senate hearing
god has taken a side
on immigration
he’s for it
she’s against it
wait
which god
are we talking about
and
why would god care
in the first place
still
they babble on
quotes from the bible
whose bible
which translation
which chapters
what about mary
what did she say
is she in your version
what about buddha
and mohammed
don’t they have americans
on their payrolls now
as well as all the others gods
this could get complicated
i mean that meaning could
have many meanings
and then
that would lead
to no meaning
and meaning
is what we are all
searching for in our lives
except for a few
rogue poets
who see
no meaning
in such attempts
at meaning
