My Twitterings

jesus's real face

The real face of Jesus

Oh Christianity!

a long history

forever arcane to us

mostly fantastical

no son of god he

a mere mortal, Jesus!

A coterie

poets

story tellers

a mere clique away

Ephebe?

I wouldn’t  lichen

that to any Greek god;

it’s just some

parasitic type of

fungus

Like a Master’s

craquelure

can’t conceal

the beauty

of a woman

or

her sensuality

open to seduction

therefore was

Calypso facto

Ogygia

helen of troy ships

Helen of Troy

prows

that’s just a

Oh Sun God

my very soul

and imbues

evening skies

with purple

orange yellow;

heavenly hues

**************************************************

Funny how a scurrilous remark like

“my god’s words are more powerful than your god’s words”

can start a war that lasts for thousands of years!

Oh Zak my vespertine boy

A daughter of Zeus no less

If all global leaders were poets

Every one pithy, witty and wise

There’d be no need for war

Each life’s precious, they’d realise

Vatican likes to generate

saintly people to venerate.

But alas, it’s Holy Watergate

For harboured priests degenerate

*******************************************

… Hate is such an adaptable word It clings to any person, object or thing Free to roost anywhere like a bird Attaching itself to a whim or a prayer … No matter what race, gender, creed No matter that we all began in one place The slightest taunt can plant a seed To kill, maim, torture or subjugate … Wish that we were all colour-blind And a boy or a girl, who should care? Gods come from a collective mind Let us all save hate for hatred itself … Hatred almost a ploy for survival In those dark days of a primitive life Now surely it’s time for a revival Of tolerance, freedom here on Earth … The worst outcome you may contemplate All humanity going up in flames Who would request such an awful fate For future generations, a hopeless waste? … Myriad men, women, children, I declare Have already perished by barbarous deeds Time to take stock. Listen! Beware! War and suffering will spread unabated … All parents, teachers, leaders, please meditate Impressionable minds absorb like a sponge Anything you teach, preach  or legislate Don’t hesitate, it’s all in your hands! … ‘Save Hate For Hatred Itself’  © To Anne Frandi-Coory 10 October 2012 – All Rights Reserved ><

 Oh, if only it could be done

as gently as the sea no less.

Let’s pulverize rocks of hate

into sands of nothingness

Nothing but divine comedy

Sir Lancelot to his citadel did ride

While singing in her boat she died
