The Return

#1 Post by Kenneth2816 » 17 Jun 2019, 17:43

On that great and terrible day,
The moon will hide its face,
Rivers roil and run black with blood.

The Lord will come on a cloud
In great power and glory ,assemble
The faithful according to their deeds,

Tie back Her golden hair,
Hike up Her skirt, kick them
Square in the nuts and say,

"How you like that, motherfuckers?"

and the *return* on the title with poem's finale


workshop-share -

a stronger verb than "say;" for examples,

Square in the nuts and scream out,

or

Square in the nuts and yell,

I like this. The last 4 lines are surprising, and effective.

Thanks Bob. Christianity has been hijacked by old white men who are hypocrites

Passing laws that require a woman to carry to term even if rape or incest.

Yes, the new dispensation is more rightly balanced of feminine and masculine attributes.
