Theological Musing Study Final

Theological Musings Final by Rod C. Stryker

Tore a rent

in reality today

and pulled out

all those prophets, gods

and semi-divine beings

that have been pestering

our fickle faiths

into the light of day

so they could

settle things amongst

themselves.

I figured it

would spare

us lowly mortals

some grief

and give us a much

needed reprieve

from genuflection, sermons,

swearing and penitence;

as well as jihads,

pilgrimages

and sacrifices;

not to mention deep-seated

resentments based

solely on a difference

of belief.

 

Once the supreme ones

finished,

I threw them back into the void

bloodied and maimed,

their divinity faded,

lackluster.

And for the first time,

we looked upon

one another

w/new eyes,

new hearts.

And began the

journey towards

peace.

This is an older piece. Seems it’s still applicable to today’s religious issues. Hope you like it.
