Let your children think for themselves


i do not dabble in drivel
i say what i know
not just what i'm told
please don't ply your children with fairy tales
like santa
the tooth fairy
pink unicorns
god
& give them a chance
punishment unheard-of
to avoid wasting their time
in labored and outdated books
the bible included

i like to read when jesus
rips off Buddha
and thereby makes good sense

a bloodthirsty god is a bashing
of believability
and why does HE have a sex?
did he mate?
who made him?
