Oh the joys of being a Heathen,
To be free of religious Brethren.
To see things as they really are,
And to not see God in ev'ry star.
The Cosmos is vast (that is true);-
But religion makes the mind askew.
So it is this: (I humbly ask);-
Please see things as they are.
Do away with Wishful Thinking,
Which makes you stupid (like you're drinking).
Kick that Opiate; Religious Smack;
Kick it down to Hell and back!
Kick that Habit - Religious Smack;
Get that Monkey off your back!
There's probably Life (apart from us);
As we sit on our Speck of Dust.
There's likely Life (apart from you);
So respect this - as I do.
To lift the Veil, to see things clear,
Is all I ask - in this life so dear.
You will have a new capacity,
To see the truth, in its veracity.
And aliens likely have their God,
For me, I'd rather have a dog!
What makes you think God cares for thee;-
On this Earth - with all its cruelty?
For me, I think there's Nothing There;
There's just a Void - not even air.
And so I do not fear Oblivion;-
It would be nice to have no worries then.
Oblivion, then, does have no worry;-
So why then, to the Bible scurry?
If Aliens have Gods, they're not the same;
As our Earth one - hence end of game.
Is there one God, or maybe two?
Or even several - is this true?
How can there be only one True God?
I think it's all a load of schmod.
There's a possibility of Reincarnation;-
Another life's encore/ovation.
If this is true, then there's Karma;-
So don't do a thing to ever harm her.

About this poem:* I have disabled comments for this poem, because I don't want to start a Shit Fight, in the PC (that would be most unseemly); anyway, the blogs are for that, lol...
** I don't really mind what anyone here believes - I'm just expressing a point of view.
*** I love you all, here, in the Poet's Corner, (regardless of what you believe)...
