Faith in Futility


Another sacred cow has just gone mad
Another failed fanatic waits in line
Another mother guards the tears she had
Another river bleeds in triple time

So long as the naïve are taught by fear
Traditions which turn fiction into fact
How long before humanity appears
To show, God and the Devil have a pact

A pact that only splits us, and divides
Gives cause to kill, for glory be to….what?
If dogmas sway, like fashions on man's tides
While each believe, they're something they are not.

Perhaps the gods of war will one day tire
When every bullet's programmed to backfire?

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
