If Left To Think For Oneself.

The seed of the Jewish man,
Swims frantically towards its goal,
To be united with that Muslim egg,
To unite in the creation of a soul,
A human child that is the same,
As any other on the Earth,
Until it is born, when begins the daft game,
From the moment of its birth.
This child is a Muslim says the mother,
No it is a Jew says the dad,
If the child had a say would it not think of other,
Than these two choices, both sad?

    Thanks for reading my poem Mr Bloody- Shaw! I think along these lines about the world, I hate the stupidity which drives the greed. (Report) Reply

    A deep and worthy poem. It epitomises the way of the world. Those two adults should do as the child would - allow a choice. Labelling is something we do in this world, unfortunately. A well-thought-out poem. I'd like to know your personal views, Tom.

Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
