Well, my friend.
You must login to vote
You poke fun at us day and night
for expression as we see it.
(Whether right or wrong.)
You think you live on some higher philosophical plain.
(And look down on us as slighly insane.)
If ignorance is bliss, you say,
kissing a pig is an elegant way
to tell us we're in hog heaven.
We take the hits from your slings and arrows
which seems to give you pleasure.
And when one of us disagrees with another believer,
you stick it in our eye for good measure.
This isn't the Coliseum in Rome,
where we all lay down for the lion,
we don't shed our blood in vain for you,
or our ink for lack of tryin'.
I have a sword and a part to play in the whole grand scheme of things.
Don't blame your angst or boredom on any of us---
try your existential kings.
I love my work and others too, and some of yours as well,
so don't blame us for your fiery LitDotHell.
We all have feelings here and time and sweat invested.
Maybe you do need to take a little break,hell, even God once rested.
But if you do go, please come back,
we love you just the same.
Post your work and comment too,
and one more thing...
Try harder not to blame.
Those darned Christians
