Jesus Eats Children

Why does Jesus love the little children?
Their brown faces
Their lanky limbs
Their shifty snake eyes
Always hiding
Never confiding
Look at them
Stench of sweat
Unwashed hands going everywhere
Always touching
Unrelenting greed
More more more more
Like nasty pigeons
Rushing and whooshing
Bellowing screaming
Crying for their stupid mothers
Blank faces
Empty consolations
Rushing back
Blurs of reddish greenish blue
Nasty dirty colors
Salty taste of filth
In the air
But I suppose
Never a child did Jesus meet
Whose flesh was not tender enough to eat.

    This is the sinful aspect of children, right? Jesus accepts them for who they are despite their filthiness. Even if I am incorrect I still like it a lot. (Report) Reply

    Aww, but you're missing the point. This isn't one of my shock poetry pieces. This has deeper meaning than you think. Perhaps maturity has blinded you... (Report) Reply

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
