Status: Finished  |  Genre: Non-Fiction  |  House: Booksie Classic

the joke is on you.


nitwits &


congregating in their little houses of worship,

celebrating a fictional character

manufactured long ago,

so that fear & control might be instilled within the


who would give up trying to change the world that

they live in &

place all their bets on a mythical overseeing tyrant


being selfish enough to muster all of life on this planet,

only to pummel it with hatred, destruction & demise,

then cast out one pubic hair of “creation” dumb

enough to

allow the rest of us to kill it,

so as to feel better about ourselves,

so as to walk the rest of our lives as if all would be

better in the


by making symbols of this character’s bogus


with strips of Arecaceae folded into little crucifixes

handed out to warped adults & unfortunately early

brainwashed youngsters,

our world gains another batch of

dull tools to be found in the shed &

damned if one can find where the sharp ones got
