“Don’t tell me about war and poverty
in the name of religious sovereignty.
How can you look at the world that you see
and not believe there is Divinity?

“Don’t tell me that it’s all just in my brain
or hologram projected from some plane.
Although God may not send each hurricane,
if you don’t sense a purpose, you’re insane.

“Don’t say chance or random evolution
is the only possible solution
or there’d be no guilt, no absolution,
in the ground then, nothing but skeleton.

“If, afterwards, it all just comes to naught,
how can you value the life that you’ve got?”

The quickest way for me to learn something new is to first understand why I'd like to learn it.

Eric not Ivor

Been Married Divorced Widowed the lot
seen war from the front and the rear
The purpose in life is to overcome strife
while there’s plenty do NOTHING my dear

Signed up and signed out both ends of life
from the dead you have little to fear
It’s just the sad feckers alive on the skive
just relaxing and pissed up on the beer

There’s plenty like me more willing to die
for to fight for some ill gotten cause
While those that did NOTHING “at all at all” (Irish adverb)
now pretending they are full of remorse

I value this life all paid-up for in time
now God has a fight on his bloody hands
If he’s just having a joke with this bloke
be-Jesus he won’t dare spoil my plans
