    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 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.

    You are so cool....A voice in the wilderness of the reality of rapture...! ! ! !

    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.

    hey there.
    i know i sem to be a really big pain but i enjoy argueing with you.
    i was wondering if you could take a look at some of my poems because i would like to see your insight's of some of them.

    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.

The Sin Of Sloth

Sloth is one of the neglected sins.

While the spotlight is focused on the heavyweight
sins like greed and gluttony, sloth is off relaxing in
the shadows.

Almost everyone can feel good about themselves
for not being slothful. I mean, everyone is slothful a
little bit. But it’s almost impossible to be a total sloth.
When was the last time you said, “That guy is a total
sloth? ”

Hey, I think sloth is a kind of animal, isn’t it? Yeah,
the three-toed sloth. I wonder how they feel about
being the embodiment of sin.

I think Jesus should ...

I was thinking about Jesus as a young boy.
You never hear about that side of him.
You just hear about him as a baby in a
manger with straw and Christmas lights,
and then all of a sudden – poof! – he’s
walking around in a beige caftan with a
full (trimmed) beard performing miracles.
But what was he like at seven or eight
years old? Was he a goody-two-shoes or
