“THE REVELATION OF ‘V’: ALUVUMAIT!“ a poem. a.k.a.: “ ‘V,’ Sometimes Does NOT Stand for Vendetta!!” August 7, 2018 – Tuesday
Many MISSIONS; many ways,
Leading to such glorious days,
When one religion “will rule them all,”
Just like THE PRECIOUS* – it shall RING tall!
This one religion, we’ve all waited for,
Will j u s t a r i s e forevermore,
Or, at least, for a long, long time to come,
EXPECTATIONS! We’re nearly dumb –
Struck, with excitement, a yearning-certain-sense,
That THIS ONE religion – will-be The Mercedes’ Benz,
Deluxe! and it will lead all women and men!
Will it be Christian, Muslim – or, maybe, Zen?!
Will it arise, when all hope is gone?
And every religion – has been undone!
It might arise – with subtlety,
And – who could-a-guessed which one it’d be?
Yet, WAIT! Blessed Vance, just down the street,
Has caught “the flavor” of “The One We’ll Meet,”
That religion, dominant, effervescent,
Is truly glorious – so Heaven – S – sent:
THE RELIGION OF VANCE, we might call IT;
Was established, when-He-received-“a hit,”
Upon his nose, from Bully Boys,
From-across “the tracks,” yet He made no noise:
Upon being bopped, on his little nose,
He did not retaliate, as you might suppose;
Oh, a tear or two – did run down like dew,
But then He said: “BULLY BOYS, I STILL LOVE YOU!”
And the fearless leader of that pack,
Shed a tear – for-religions-often-lack,
That certain, all-forgiving state,
Vance’s Religion? is-called-”I-LOVE-YOU-MATE!”** [Aluvumait!]
- the sacred, all-powerful ring in “Lord of the Rings!”
** – P. S. : and you don’t have to love me back!! ❤
