Why I Am Not A Christian Poem by Nassy Fesharaki

Why I Am Not A Christian

Rating: 4.0

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

Bravely speaking out
Even against the God
Against the Lord

But he was also against
Mass production

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?

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...

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.

1% of the world‘S population owns 99% of the total wealth.what does that mean? Remaining 99% of the population own just 1% of the resources, leaving most of them in abject poverty.

A great thought provoking poem. Religion is a choice so just because he has a different view does not make his poem plagiarism.

4) but were the views and writings of another. In a way, this is subtle plagiarism. Thank YOU dear Cynthia B-B.

3) and it also addresses the personal observations on one inidividual amongst billions that make up this world. The choice of title effectively attracts the reader, but fails with a thud, as the discovery that the ideas and principles delineated were not original to the writer,

Aside and after thanking you for such a great comment I need to take you to the university where I studied Creative Writing, and, of course poetry was a part of...poems are defined and Titles play a role in the work though this title belongs to Bertrand Russel.
