God Bless The Freaks

Poem by Alexander Shaumyan

God bless the freaks
And the deranged,
The ones who are
Violent and strange,
God bless the retards
And the geeks.

God bless the butches
And the femmes,
God bless all those
We condemn,
God bless the brainless
And the meek.

God bless the lowlives
Riding bikes
And punks in leather
Wearing spikes,
God bless the water
And the piss.

God bless the beer
And the sun,
God bless the soldier
And his gun,
God bless the bombs
That kill the kids.

God bless you all
For being numb,
God bless the dead,
God bless Vietnam,
And thousands more
That will be killed.

God bless all those
Who don't think,
Who scratch their ass
And have a drink,
God bless their shit
That doesn't stink.

God bless the holy
And the wise,
God bless the moon
And the sunrise,
God bless the war,
God bless the lies,
God bless this world
About to sink.

God bless the poem,
God bless the muse,
God bless abusers
And abused,
God bless your cock,
Your ass and tits.

God bless your mom,
God bless your dad,
God bless the sane,
God bless the mad,
God bless the ones
Who cannot speak.

God bless all those
Who say: 'God bless',
While working more
And earning less,
While blessing their
Oppressive pricks.

God bless you all,
I say to you,
This world you see
Is nothing new -
Whether it's cursed,
Ignored or blessed -
It is our home

    i have to say that i believe in God, but don't find the poem offensive, every one has their own opinions on God and his blessings. But i found it very interesting. :)(Report)Reply

    Gold Fish thinks this poem IS highly graphical. & They also think that Lily should not shut up, but she should also know that it's access, not axcess. But Alexander is right, God blesses everyone.

    okay, listen, my opinion on this poem. For 1. the poet was obviously angry with the world, but come on! We don't really need this kind of poem on the website because some kids have full axcess here! And another thing, i don't believe in God. My mother and my Father do, but she respects my fair judgement. In some respects i do like this poem, in other respects I HATE IT.

    sorry for my spelling, i'm only twelve.(Report)Reply

    I think Shaumyan is making fun of stuck up christians in this poem but that is something people dont seem to see is exactly what he didnt either. True Christians recieve anybody for who they are they might not agree! ! ! with everything in their life but they wont judge u for u.
    Its a good poem but a little absurd in some lines ''cock''? ? ? ? ? wtfreak? ? ?(Report)Reply

    yea so many people think that if you believe in 'God' everything that has to do with him or cristianity it self has to be perfect when in reality it's not god created everything on earth from the freaks to the saints. and you r taught in church to except and forgive and this poem tells it how it should be.
    thats how I feel anyway
    I realy like it it makes you think if you have an open mind(Report)Reply

  • Anna Russell (9/27/2006 5:36:00 AM) mention of the 'G' word seems to bring out the crazy in folk. I personally enjoyed this - if anything I think it's in keeping with the true ideals of the Christian fatih. Remember Jesus' track record with lepers?

    This poem is total crap. When talk about god there needs to be some respect in the choice of words. look at the words choosen. it means the poet has no quality or standard. its worth to be in the bin(Report)Reply

    I found this to be a really interesting poem. As a Christian I can say that you're not gonna go to hell for writing it (some people are a little strange wouldn't you say) . For me it has the feeling of being about thoes on the margins, the one's that society and 'the' church don't aprove of. I like it a lot.(Report)Reply
