Why I Am Not A Christian - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki

About a decade had passed
Bertrand Russell had written
Why I Am Not a Christian
In 1957

It was an Essay
An effort to perform or attempt
A French Word
In writing

'In God we trust'
That was an official motto
In USA replacing 1782
In 1956

Revolutions
Bravely speaking out
Even against the God
Against the Lord

But he was also against
Mass production
Globalization
Slavery

The world’s need for needle
Is limited so if...
The question was
What if...?

What if machine fulfills
A year’s need
In a day
What then?

Unemployment
Jobless machine
He said and...And?
His comment fell on deaf ears

Ownership of wealth is
99% holding one percent
And One percent 99%
Get ready for disaster...

    Read you poem a few times. Don't worry about your detrators. This isn't plagiarism; your facts are common knowledge, like The Lord's Prayer. Like the minimalistic style. (Report) Reply

    It is true that a small number of people are holding a big percentage of the world's wealth. I think it is a made made situation not necessarily a God dictated one. Point well expressed in the poem. (Report) Reply

    There are only 80 people in the world who are the richest people, yet they rule the world by creating wars, poverty, racism, hatred, prejudice and evil. Why do the rest of the people let them continue doing this? Why don't they rise up against this nonsensical evil? RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    I am against the 1% holding the bulk of wealth, power and land too. I just don't know what the answer is (Report) Reply

    what if there's no work,
    let alone 1%,
    and there's no money,
    let alone 1%,
    for no work? (Report) Reply

    I read through this expecting poetry but it seems like an article separated by stanzas about the writings of a man who was not a Christian because of political views. Understandable, the piece created more questions about technology and the advance of science as progress dictates, and it also addresses the personal observations on one inidividual amongst billions that make up this world. The choice of title effectively attracts the reader, but fails with a thud, as the discovery that the ideas and principles delineated were not original to the writer, but were the views and writings of another. In a way, this is subtle plagiarism. (Report) Reply

    My dear, this title is the title of the essay of a man who was respecting Christianity even if not one of the believers and respected all because love is the base of humanity and equality. Thanks for the clear and honest comment.
