Getting it All Wrong

Getting it All Wrong short poem

Photo by Chris Yarzab

Commandment Six, thou shalt not kill,
Forbade taking a life,
But still it is in God’s good name
The man brings down his knife.

Said Jesus, Love thy neighbour as
Yourself, but even still,
Muslims, Jews, and blacks, and gays,
Are made to bear ill will.

In Israel and Palestine,
Again this tenet breaks,
And still it seems that genitals
Is what a leader makes.

Science proved Darwin was right
But the pushers still say “No!”
And keep their faith in one book, penned
Millennia ago.

Such are the religious wrongs,
That rule our world today,
Stubborn, mouldy old bull shit,
That should be thrown away.

It’s this traditional stubbornness,
That makes us all feel jaded.
They don’t realise that in the end,
Change can’t be evaded.

My muse is like an excitable dog. It catches sight of totally random things and starts yapping and running around and wagging its tail and WILL NOT STOP until I write a poem about it.My poetry is sometimes based on personal experience and sometimes on other things. Aside from that, I enjoy video games (My favourite game series is Mass Effect) and the popular television show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
