“GUESSING AT GOD!” a poem a.k.a.: “God CAN Be Like Facebook, Inc.: No Heart To Appeal To – And No Arse To Kick! Kinda Like An Algorithm!” October 22, 2018: Monday! JFASTERFERT POET
All-you(we)-can-do- is – GUESS AT GOD,
‘Cause we is even! and IT – is odd!
There’s (just) no way – to pin IT down,
BUT! Also-NO-reason to wear a frown,
For “GOD” can never be like us,
‘Cause we-wouldn’t-throw-us “under-The-Bus,”
TO HIS (Her) SONS-&-DAUGHTERS! Just because!!!
There ain’t no reason! and-there ain’t no rhyme,
And NO WAY to-describe-GOD – and IT ain’t no crime!
It’s just the way – that things are HERE,
With humans-filled: with-anxiety-and-fear,
AND – GOD’S – GOT – NONE-O’-THAT! (pause) –
Except! as-(s)he manifests! through a dog or cat,
Or a girl or boy or a plague-filled rat,
Or a brown recluse! (under your (Welcome) Mat),
Or a-poor-deer-in-your-headlights! Oh-yes! What JOY,
Death! Disease! Distress! What-a-wondrous-decoy,
We get to experience – in this 3-D Play,
“THE PLAY’S THE THING!”* – and GOD’S OK,
With whatever we do, in this play of fools,
Forcing human beings, into mold-infested schools,**
Into FRONT LINE ACTION*** – and debates on The Floor,****
GOD DON’T CARE – FOREVERMORE!
Except AS GOD SEES IT – through OUR eyes;
To God – no-existence – is much-of-a-surprise!
For GOD don’t care – IF we ALL die off;
To God, our demise is like a little cough!
So, f – – – You, God – ‘cause I love my Sheila,
And, y’know? Yea, God! I-kinda-feel-Yah,
& I’m SURE! You’ll be STANDING-LONG-AFTER-I’M-GONE,
And, maybe I AM – just a hapless pawn,
But I’ll do what I can – to resist your complacent MIND,*****
And! If-I-get-a-chance! I’ll-kick-you (hard) in-The-Behind!!
🙂 – Shalom, God! (You Turkey Buzzard!!)

** – Case in point – Alpine High School, Alpine, Texas, U. S. A.
*** – You can’t have too much war, since “There’s a time for everything under Heaven!!” (famous, stupid Biblical statement!)
**** – Politicians LOVE to argue – and ALSO The Rest of Us! – It is just that some folks enjoy FOCUSING on arguing about EVERYTHING! 🙂 – like me?
***** – Just like Neo, who resisted The computer-generated “Agents” in the film “The Matrix!”
