Description:


An ancient and clumsy rally against everything.
You get like that when you get pubes, spots and an attitude.


Under Two Suns



The voices of
a thousand dead
cry in agony-
under two suns.
The Great flag
hangs over me-
and my kind.
And we don't believe
in your miracles-
but to see you all
flock
to your
mock
salvation-
destroys a belief
in myself.

Hail Mary and wheel out
your dead,
crippled
disfigured
and maimed.
Our Father of a Bastard Child
conceived in a fairy tale.

Rich men going to your heaven,
on earth oppress the poor,
But they will rise, forever defy-
Till they are slaves no more.

The distance between you and them
is the gap
from the blade
to
the
vein...



Ben Gunn jan 1986

  I like the direction of this poem; you seem to be on a regular crusade against deity-idolizing religion. However, I feel it's too open and there is little to no structure. I say this because the first two stanzas are of similar structure, and then you shift into a rhyme (which was very nice), and then into a shorter stanza that doesn't match anything. I'd say clean up the structure a little, but that's it. Love it.

  And you said my poetry was depressing. I love your work in general, I just love the way you use words. This is a really strong and powerful piece that presents an amazing image of something I completly disagree with. I love it only because I love it even when I don't agree with it.
