Why I Am Not A Christian

Rating: 3.7
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...

An interesting piece of writing which lends itself more to prose than poetry, I think. Let's hope the prediction does not come to pass!

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

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.
