Too Bad About That Virgin Sacrifice

The kid in the corner looked at the priest
And fingered his pale red chest scar
A Christian or Muslim
The six wives and their husband
The Buddhist, Hindu and Jew
Add them to the queue
God wants borders
God wants light
God wants peace
God wants war
What God wants God gets God help us all

The Cardinal at the altar
Took the blade from its hook
The mother goddess in the corner
Read the ritual in the book
The hooded encircle the aura of fear
Reporting the truth can never come near
God wants blood
God wants sweat
God wants incense
God wants chain stores
What God wants God gets God help us all

God wants submission
God wants sex
God wants freedom
God wants bounced cheques
God wants coke
God wants crack
God wants tea parties
God wants Nasdaq
God wants Google
God wants shrines
God wants law
God wants organised crime
God wants crusade
God wants jihad
God wants Yin
God wants Yang
What God wants God gets God help us all

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
