Pater Nostra - Poem by Virginie Guillemette

I know better than
to test you
Cosmic Man
You read between the lines
just fine
but can you truly
read this mind?

If so you know
what i keep in there
not even a chair
or seat or a throne
to call your Emperial Home

Creations are a bitch, I know
and we don't catch on
man has always been slow

but if you condemn me
then remember who made me
save a place for me at your Judgement Show
Front Row
when it's my time to go.
if you're there, that is
then this game is rigged
and I, no hope to win
condemned to sin
and I'm sure it sticks
in your craw sometimes
to know how lovely
to see how fine
how it can feel Devine
to sin in kind.

    I really enjoyed this. Very strong and well written - I especially liked those last two lines.
