I never really believed in God
Not even as my mother read me the bible on Christmas Eve
One hundred thousand arguments and prayers around me

Each look masked and dodged from other's eyes

I, too, knew I stopped believing in God

When the name Merrick echoed through my rotting head
Decaying from the brainwash of a thousand chain stores and pop music through the ages

Boring holes by the drill of Rules and System, Class photos and IDs

And, Merrick, I knew from the time I heard your name

as I listened to the music of the father of 'grunge, '

That if there was a god nothing would have a specific name and you and I and all the world would not be subjected to this order

Merrick, I dont believe in God.
{Who can prove it? }

Merrick I dont believe in Kate Moss.
{Only the Queen of the materialistic world}

{And we've never accepting differing outlooks into society}
Merrick we're all just shit.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
