Atheism At Christmas


..Atheism at Christmas
Exchanging knick-knacks
Appreciating the spirit
Yet..denying...the facts

Atheists and politicians
...Commonality to-wit
Raging…within ‘em
That beguiled hypocrite

15 April for example
..U S National tax time
ObamaCare deductions
Once adamantly maligned

But this day applauded
..Even Congress a fan
Boehner’s tears smile’n
“Barack’s my main Man”

Reality’s song singing
..“What’s in it for me”
Somewhere in the melody
..Resolves....mystery
*

*
‘Tis the Atheist at Christmas
Exchanging knick-knacks
Appreciating the spirit
...Still

.........Denying

.................The facts

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
