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...

    That great MAN respecting Christianity because he believes in love, equality, humanity and respect life with all these elements. A great writing. (Report)Reply

    Beautiful rendition of words. I am an exponent of the capitalist school of thought - capitalism which improves efficiency, like the beautiful peacock that has ugly legs, has its ugly sides. An insightful poem elegantly brought forth. Thanks for sharing Nassy. (Report)Reply

    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

    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

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