The Gospel of Our Own Destruction: Unfinished

I can give the good to God

But where to give the bad?

I walk among men and know

The devil’s

Not elsewhere to be had

If

man is made in his image

Then

God is ego, warring man

Obsessive destroyer of things

Which no woman understands

Maybe

this God by proxy

Was not the original intent

Forcing women to believe

Otherwise

Is man’s ultimate achievement

Maybe

Jesus did have a wife

From whom he sought his peace

And the age-old truth was lost;

Man’s original deceit
