When I saw a quote of the inimitable Jon Stewart: he deadpanned on Comedy Central's The Daily Show, "God, you've made your point. You're all-powerful," I got it.
Yet it isn't God we need to be addressing our concerns to -- it's us.
A Phenomenal Conversion
... Sweet women, youths, men, all incredulous,
W ho chimed as one: 'This figure is of straw,
This requiem mockery! Still he lives to us!'
from “God’s Funeral” by Thomas Hardy
Is god dead?
No, she only changed her underpants
Crotchless, provocative dominatrix
that she is
Unafraid to undress enough
to expose the hapless male warrior
with his erect member she no longer heeds.
wail from their pulpits—“Behold!
The end is near!”
That it is: right behind them
roaring off to a future
the prophets did not see.
They were looking to the sky or dreaming, while
Mother Earth had the key
wired into a code of life the wise understood
when god lifted her skirt.
