'' I Have Granted Him Absolution ''

I spoke to the one called the saviour,
Challenging him to a debate,
I have to say I don’t like his behaviour,
As he’s already two hours late.

I gave a time and a destination,
Problem is he didn’t reply,
That’s a source of great frustration,
As you’re not allowed to ask why.

I did it through the power of prayer,
That’s the best way I was told,
Invisible beings cause me despair,
They must be a power to behold.

Answerable to nobody except yourself,
I’d say a bit like a politician,
He must also be like my garden elf,
No stomach for an inquisition.

I’ve now been waiting four long days,
His arrogance really astounds,
I wouldn’t say that he’s worthy of praise,
He has given me no reason or grounds.

If he’s as powerful as you make out,
He could respond to my personal request,
But of his existence I am now in doubt,
This has left me quite distressed.

He created the universe and all within,
Yet he fails to come to a meeting,
Surely that should be classed as a sin,
I at least deserve a greeting.

I’ve given him a week and he’s failed to appear,
Will he now suffer my retribution?
I can honestly say he should not feel fear,

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wote this as a challenge to believers and non believers of Gods to express a purely personal opinion that if we looked after each other the same way we treat these invisible deities, our world would become a far better place, is that not what all Gods messages are supposed to convey.As God is always there to listen so are we.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
