James Bredin

(1933 / Ennis Canada)


We've established the idea that there has to be a god,
Gave churches, synagogues, mosques and temples the nod,
We have fought many battles over which religion is right,
Whichever side won, always celebrated with great delight.

We still can't get together because their religion is wrong,
A sin or a sacrilege for sure that has gone on far too long,
The only thing we can't deny is that, we eventually die,
No shortcuts or euthanasia and religious types wont say why.

Unfortunately what I write here will not change a thing,
The UN is a fine example as they try to pull all the strings,
If they only had the guts to say, all religions are wrong,
We would probably be better off and maybe all get along,

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
