The Bible says we're all God's children.

Well Daddy ran away today,
I'm the unwanted child of God.

Dear Father, 

The Bible says we're all God's children.
Freud says Daddy's a model for God.
Well Daddy ran away today,
I'm the unwanted child of God.

They say you've got a big, new place
with golden, pearly gates,
I bet it's nice for you up there
without the kids you hate.

You ran away
with kids to raise,
you won't pay mom
but still want praise,

you turn up every Sunday morning,
expecting us to play,
but I'd rather spend your money
than spend time with you today.

Go back to your other son,
the one you left to die,
we learnt from his mistakes and
we won’t give into your lies.

But before you go, there is one thing
I feel I must confess,
we're taking over all you've built,
we're cleaning up your mess.

So don't come crawling back to us
when Eden's overgrown,
no one loves you anymore,
I hope you die alone.

Really, WOW. Interesting Fraudian insert. You hit a vein in me with that tactic. Because, I feel God and Heaven is a psycological replacement for the parental relationship we nolonger have when our parents pass away or when we get older and are out on our own. But I often wonder if any of that Heaven/Hell stuff is real or just fiction. I can't deside.

And ah yes, I do love a bit of philosophy and psychology, can't get my head around whether things are relative or universal, real or an illusion etc.
The mind boggles =s
Anywho, thanks for reading.

Huh. Interesting poem. I wouldn't agree with Freud that 'Daddy is a model for God', I think it would be more that God is a model for Daddy. But whatever. It's fun trying to twist your mind around things and philosophizing. ;)

Absolutely, after all, as Plato said, philosophising is the only way to reach the realm of the forms.
Thanks for reading =D

Good one. For many children to give to their Dad. If that Dad has consistently let them down. When he could have done the right thing/s.

Good use of rhyme and rhthm. Excellent presentation.

Gave it a "5".

Happier trails,

Ed Bradley.
