Best Poem of Paul Butters

A Better Way

There has to be a better way.
Than endless warring,
Selfish ways
And committing countless crimes:
Robbing Peter to pay Paul.

Go look:
Beyond beyond:
Infinity eternal,
Eternal infinity,
Infinite eternity,
Eternity infinite.
The home of God,
In all its splendour.

Then see,
Within yourself:
I say again:
Heaven is in us,
Somewhere.

Game Of Never

Life-Death Forgotten, Never Was;
Time, matter whirling, empty space.
Love, merely hunger, drives us on;
Self, ever lonely, rots apace.
God, faintly ruling, far away,
Sees sinful, lusty liars pray.
Vague faceless ocean,
Blackest Light;
Nothing tells us what is Right.
