Return of the Sun God - poetic commentary on theocracy
20 Jul 2004
Come millions of years, when your god is history
Attention dreamers, blasphemers and schemers
there's a blue-light special in the seventh aisle
there's a good chance the 2nd coming came and went
that Jesus got whacked by the FBI
that the anti-christ is really a head of state tempting fate, that the Rapture lost stature, the saved are actually lost,sinking daily into dull cardboard boxes full of single old gloves and soiled eyeglass cases
There's a good chance none of that matters
that the lark will sing regardless who listens, the fly or flea will bite both sinner & savior, that the laws of physics will
remain the same and believers will believe in unbelievable tales
of things they've never seen.

Come millions of years, when your god is history
the Sun will expand beyond any command and
toast every marshmallow in sight
The stars have no interest in investments or vestments,
quarterly reports are mere fuel for the fire, so the liar, the broker, the barker, the joker are
all in the dustbin together, forever.

RA is my God!
20 Jul 2004
RA has been worshipped for thousands of years. Without RA all of us would die.
Worship RA,(the Sun,) and enjoy today.
Our only true warmth.
