Random Poem:

I am Jack's intense hate...

If you saw god,
what would you do?
Would you run from the hilltops
screaming that you have the divine right
to sin and be forgiven?
Or would you keep it a secret?
something between you and god,
something between you and your soul.
You could search for a
concrete reason
all you want.
Good luck finding one.
Preists tell me to search in my soul.
That's about the most standard
and unoriginal
answer I've ever heard.
Search in my soul,
search for jesus,
find god,
find salvation...
and search in my heart.
The heart is a fucking muscle.
I might as well go digging around
in my lungs
while I'm at it.
Why even bother?
God won't learn.
He'll just sit up in heaven... or wherever he lives.
0007 Babylon Road?
You can pray all you want;
try to get into heaven.
You might as well pray to your kitchen counter;
because we're not going anywhere.
He moved in on the first day,
infiltrated on the second,
killed innocent people on the third,
cleaned up their brains on the fourth,
watched them rot on the fifth,
laughed at their disgrace on the sixth.
...and on the seventh day,
he sat back and admired his work.
