take a good look in the good book

as i read through the pages of the book that we believe 
i find the notion in this book that everyone has preconceived 

i find it to be a lie and a blatant hypocrisy 
what else can i call it? belligerent blasphemy?

the devils first lie is that we shall be as God's 
Jesus was a man i find that kind of odd

if Jesus was God then the devil was telling the truth 
genesis chapter 3 verse 5 is my proof 

"the word became flesh" how silly can this be 
i guess we are also to worship the pagan trinity?

please show me the word trinity anywhere in the good book 
trust me it's not there i've already taken a good look 

if Jesus is God and it is his path we are suppose to follow
how can i believe Jesus if the devils words aren't hollow????

    There was an old singer named Melanie..she wrote a song about an old love.It goes--Johnny boy, my friend. It is the end of the summer time, in the wine, in a tree, you and me, You recall all those years I had tears, you could not keep them from falling, but ya did, Johnny boy, my friend..they're falling again....This song reminded me of you and all that you are going thru. Hang tough, Johnny Boy! I know you are a very strong person...your poetry says so! Gwendolen

    This is an interesting poem, John Castro..I know that the word trinity is not in there...the devil's words are not hollow bc he knows the truth...The truth of his future. We need faith bc we have not seen...the devil knows everything that is to unfold and he is running around trying to spoil as many trophies as he can so their souls will be banished with him in hell...As always, your poetry gets me all pumped up and on fire. I am gonna grab a cup of coffee and read a read a few more..Did you write a clerihew for me...No one has written one about a rapper or sports figures...Check out Andrea's blog on The Clerihew Battle..they are easy easy and fun. Love your presence here, John. Gwendolen
