Faith from the Beginning

The piece below is part of an audio presentation that grew from a cinquain-T that was published on Poets Against the War and listed as a "Poem of the Week (Dec 18)" and on Grass & Gravel Times (Dec 20)

Our Father Which Art In Heaven

This species believes
It was created in a divine image
Not from apes descended
Does not evolution conceive
As the story of its beginnings
Where survival of the fittest
Carries forward the past

It could be true
They have a culture test
That requires the young and strong
To kill each other
For honor and glory
To please the old and dead
Condemning the love of their mothers
To prove that God is the father
