Manifesto To God - Poem by Max Reif

I want Heaven On Earth
to be my brand name,
I want to be a full distributor.

That's what I want
pouring out of my cup
to everyone I talk to,
everyone I e-mail,
everyone I touch.

That's the only product
I want to handle,
because I see it's so close,

I see it in the green of every palm tree,
in the lovely color of blue
chosen for our sky,
and in the life-giving rain.

I don't read the papers,
let them keep putting out their bad news,
sooner of later people will wise up,

they'll come to where
milk and honey are always flowing,
drink the sweet milk
at the coconut's center
instead of choking
on its hairy husk.

It's not my brand, God, it's yours,
it's not like I'm trying to take credit,
you're the sole bottler and manufacturer,
I only want a franchise,
I just want to move that bliss,
and work for you, Big Guy, forever

    Good plan! Let's replace the world of the doable and marketable with the world of the beautiful and miraculous. All in favor, please signify by...... (Report) Reply

    I think we, as human kind, will wise up later as opposed to sooner. We are a hard headed lot of people!

    This poem is a must read for today's people. Reading such poems can bring a miraculous change(Which I yearn for) . Your poem is simply laudable.

    Thank u - N.D.

    A challenge; I see the manifestant in bargain.............heaven & hell next door neighbours........you can use the same key for both? Brilliant Idea. (Report) Reply

    Wonderful stuff Max, an atheist such as myself cannot fault such faith, for what the hell have I got to offer?

    Such cynicism to end; a rebuke to those who worship at the alter of consumerism.

    It's just so well done I wouldn't want to quibble over a little thing such as differing opinions

    A nice twist on the wake-up-and-smell-the-roses attitude. (Report) Reply
