Today I Encountered the Armageddonists

September 24, 2008

In the middle of town they stood on each corner
yelling words they believed to be God’s.
Their silent wives held signs as if crosses.
The pictures of Jesus dripped Ashouran blood.

Yet another tear parade.
(We have all been wronged.)

Mohammad and Jesus in an elevator stuck.
Would they battle or avoid the others’ eye?
Embrace as a force of love?
Divide the world like bloody soul pie?

I would bet on love.
I would bet on love again.

Dying in some cesspool place
no chance to embrace YOUR divinity.
Condemned by GOD to more suffering,
I want no part of such DEITY.

    This pretty much exactly expresses my views too Qazse.

    I actually did encounter Armageddonists this past Sunday afternoon. It was surreal. I engaged one of the males in conversation. I had grown up in the magical think tank known as Catholicism. I could relate to some of his motivation but he could relate to nothing I said. Probably due to all the fear shoved into his sincere and capable head. My diagnosis: Dogmatic Illness.

    Interesting to think of those two in an elevator together. But definitely, forgiveness is the only way to move forward and is the only healthy way to live. I really like the poetry that I’m seeing over here.
