A Liberal from the village though,
A welfare cheat without a job
Too lazy to come and watch the snow.

When We Go To Heaven

When we go, do we all have to play harps? If we do,
I'm assuming we'll instantly know how to play them,
right? It's not like we'll have to take lessons or anything,
right? (cause you know what drudgery that can be - all

Are You Judging Me?

I was thinking that Judgment Day might not be
the big phantasmagoric Hollywood laser show

It might actually be a fairly low-key affair. And it

Professor Poetry Hound Comments

Dear Poetry Hound, Thanks for your comments on my poem 'A bud crushed under the foot.' It is a surprise, you came alive after 1996 just to write a line on this true story. Are you a dead 76 (1996-1920) or alive 51, which one is correct? Please reveal your true identity, as the Poemhunter welcomes you in the open to this forum. Rajaram Ramachandran, Juhu, Mumbai, India.

This was such a great idea to embellish and expound upon. Many of us have made fleeting references and allusions to the subject you tackle as your central theme...piety, reality versus perceived reality, etc. However, none of us have worked from such a rich template as you have developed here. I haven't missed many in the series and I would cite 'If I Were God', 'Automobile Insurance', 'Bad Miracles...as a few of the best to date. Great biography page. There is something deliciously existential (Camus' notion of existentialism) about the pasquinades on offer here. Mistakenly, a lot of folks view these pieces as an attack on Christianity or God, losing sight of the fact that they function as attacks on peoples' interpretations of Christianity/ God as much as anything else. None of my comments are a shallow attempt to be nice to you because as you know, I have long considered you a weasel. As this series took flight (or 'ascended into the heavens') , I was envious that I didn't think of your idea first. Now, I keep thinking of lots of things I could do a series on like this but feel that you have left an indelible Poemhunter paw-print that I could not replicate. When your work on this theme is complete, I hope you will make an ebook available for download. Great fun, PoHo.

Love the biography... all of which is, of course, true. Nikhil Parekh can barely aspire to polishing your wordly shoes, oh Lord of all things indefatigable.
