“I AM YOUR GREATEST FAN!” a poem in our latest series of poems called: “Mixed Blessings!” 9 July 2019 (Tuesday)
IF there was a GOD, He tricks us EVERY DAY;
SHE-frustrates-NO!-She-torments us in-every-way,
For we’re COM-PELLED – to fall in love – and lust for evermore,
Unable-to-get even-a-little-close to-The-One(s)-whom-we-a-dore!
And/Or – IF there was a GOD, we GET-TO marry “one,”
Who’ll make our life A NIGHTMARE! Is-there-a-GOD, who’s havin’ FUN?
Training us, UNTIL WE SCREAM, relying-on-a Gospel-Prayer,
THAT “GOD WON’T GIVE US MORE THAN WE-ARE-ABLE TO-BEAR!?!”
Well, however-much-we’d-LIKE-to-believe that such a thing is true,
GOD LOVES to give us WAY, WAY MORE – than-we-can-EVER-handle! ‘Tis true!
So, we can drop right to our knees – and scream aloud and say:
IF there was a GOD, I’m-sure S(HE)’d answer RIGHT AWAY:
“NO, I-got a whole lot more t’-give-you SO YOU CAN PAY,
For all the sins that you commit, knowing and unknown!”
“Thanks-a-bunch, OH, GOD OF LOVE – for-makin’-me-cry-&-moan!”
OR – IF there was a GOD, LIFE IS QUITE UN-CLEAR:
We’ll NEVER know God’s gender! or why we’re filled with fear,
At EVERY TURN of THIS FINE LIFE! I’m-telling-you nothing-new,
IF there was a GOD ’round here GOD-we’d-ALL-gladly-sue!
Let’s-ALL-“issue a subpoena,” and-then GOD-will-“give-us-The-Finger,”
And say: ” F – – – U, you bunch of turds! May-your-suffering-ALWAYS-linger!”
Thanks, GOD – for ALL YOUR BLESSINGS, Your Commandments & Your “Plan,”
To save and love all “The Elect!”
I AM YOUR GREATEST FAN!
