Sidewalk Apocalypse (Religious Comment)

Poetry By: joshua boyde
Religion and spirituality

An alternate view of the Apocalypse.
This poem needs to be viewed both from the perspective of the written word and the images presented.

Sidewalk Apocalypse

Piss ... Over Here
It comes as a whisper along the wall.
A call to 'prair' for us all.
A priest head-butts the Wailing Wall.
A nun dressed as a whore waits for her apostle to come to call.
Prophets with spray-cans; decorate the Sistine Hall.
Angels dressed as someone else; now live in an abandon house.
Demons inside the TV scream; with their feeble schemes.
The Devil resides in a luxury car; parked along the boulevard.
Subways to the Styx; the ferry man takes an overseas trip.
They do not understand... With sacred books in hand.
Sermons... burning in a trash can.
All signs of the Apocalypse... for those who have not yet come to grips.
Temptation... an offer to good to refuse, and too late to un-choose.
Expectation... there is no sorrow, when there is no tomorrow.
Revelation... Is standing in the unemployment line.
I guess we're...
Out Of Time.
