Blasphemy--Warning: Explicit language and highly offensive

(These are lyrics to a song I wrote called "Blasphemy")

Mother Mary sat on a bench with me today
But I couldn't think of one goddamn thing to say
'Cept, "Mother, oh! Won't you please save my soul right now?
I'd gladly do it but I don't know exactly how"
Hail Mary! Bless me twice!
Judas betrayed Jesus Christ
In Revelations, prophets said
John the Baptist lost his head

You gotta pander to my ego
Herod was my hero
Why didn't Noah's Ark fall apart?
Genesis was...just the start

St. Peter slammed those Pearly Gates right into my fuc*ing face
Just too much sin I can't get in; no mansion there for me awaits
The wife of Lot, she turned to salt, but it was not all her fault
She ran away and then looked back as Sodom burned, and that's a fact

Repeat Chorus...

Well, life was Hell so Jonah sailed into the belly of a whale
Daniel in the lion's lair; Delilah chopped off Samson's hair
Cain killed Abel out of spite as the Lamb of God got sacrificed
There came the Whore of Babylon while Thomas doubted every-one

Repeat Chorus...

**Just trying to post something a little different ;)

    I find this very amusing and horrifyingly accurate. If schools allowed this manner of discussion re: The Good Book, then perhaps teens will listen in and know what happened when. :o Brother, I have my share of Blasphemous poems and I'd gladly post them really soon. Let's compare notes! HAHAHAHA Is there a recording of this piece up somewhere on the web? :o

    Well, I figured it needed a disclaimer, especially for the religiously sensitive lol. I understand what you mean, but I hate looking through my portfolio and seeing "rhyme" listed 99% of the time; I detest monotony. I'm going to stop saying "thank you" to you; you and I understand each other and I know you know how much I appreciate your words without having to say it ;)

    Interesting. Very different from my poem on blasphemy. The people I wrote about are very common in the area where I live. They make the most ignorant, illiterate religious posts to Facebook and actually seem to believe that God reads them. I've seen posts where they say you will receive a blessing from God in a matter of seconds if you repost their inane material. Elton

    Yes, very different. I just thought it was interesting that we both posted (unbeknownst) a piece about blasphemy. Of course, mine is intentional and yours is commentary. Thanks for stopping by, Elton :)
