Poetry by Brian37 (poems by an atheist)

I post all over the web, but I want a back up in case my computer or one particular website goes down.

Out out brief Candle, By Brian37

QUOTE WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE MACBETH:"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Here is my spin on that wonderful and profound line:



Out, Out brief candle, By Brian37

To-deities, and to-gods, and to-God

Creeps in this petty tyrant from day to day

Until the extinction of humanity new ones will be invented

And all our yestergods have been created by fools

The way to tribal death. Out out brief myth

Claims are but a walking shadow, a poor reflection

That struts our narcissism upon the stage

And then is heard no more. It is a tale

Told by the credulous, full of sound and fury

Signifying nothing.

We Are, By Brian37 We are

We Are, By Brian37

 

We are your family

We are your co workers

We are your neighbor

We are your fellow citizens

 

We are pro questioning

We are pro science

We are diverse individuals

In class and economics

 

We are anti violence

We are anti bigotry

We are absolutely for

Human rights, even when we blaspheme

 

We have no horns

Or magic powers

You wont burst into flames

If you shake hands with one of us

 

But when you ask

Why we get angry

When you ask

Why we get "uppity"

 

Ayaan can tell you

Malala as well

Credulity in mass

Leads to atrocities

 

When you attack science

And say it is wrong

We call you rightfully hypocrites

When you use it without knowing

 

When my sister

Who merely said

"I don't believe"

And left it at that

 

Even without

Being like me

"In your face"

As some would claim

 

She still faced scorn

She didn't deserve

And PC atheists

Want me to be polite?

 

The word alone

All by itself

"Atheist" is seen as evil

Without us raising a fuss

 

We are your neighbors

We are your friends

When you stop viewing us as evil

THEN I can shut up

 

But that won't happen

In a deluded world

I don't want your silence

So don't demand my submission

 

"That is not true

That I would not do"

Hicthens on Abraham

And God asking him

 

"Murder your son

Prove your loyalty"

Hitchens would say

"No, fuck you!"

 

Attacking claims

Is not physical assault

Using the word "bullshit"

Is not militant

 

We are your neighbors

We are your friends

We are your co workers

We are your family you don't want us to exist

 

What if someone

Said to you

The Yankees won the Superbowl

What would you do?

 

Would you think

They were sane

Would you not want

To correct their mistake?

 

The pc atheist

Would think the same

Call it bullshit

If only in their head

 

But both of us, and most of us

Are not millitant

We don't blow things up

Or shoot doctors

 

We are your faimly

We are your friends

We won't disown you

Over one issue

 

If you were bleeding

In the street

As a believer

In need of help

 

The atheist would not

If they are sane

Say "let them die"

Because they think your claims are crap

 

We also would not

Disown our kids

If they decided

They do believe

 

At best the parent

Might roll their eyes

Call the claims crap

But still love them no less

 

The magic of words

Is patiently stupid

The believer thinks the same

Of our position

 

"Love the sinner

Not the sin"

They blast us too

In hopes to save us

 

The secular version

Could go like thus

"Love the claimant

Not the claim"

 

We are your family

The entire earth is

One species

On one planet

 

If the worst

Our species concern

Was blasphemy

Or a cuss word

 

Imagine the reduction

In worldwide violence

If more people

Could make it to bed

 

A harsh word

Is far better than death

I think what is better

In the face of this

 

We are your family

We are your friends

We are your co workers

We do exist

"He's Coming Soon" By

"He's Coming Soon" By Brian37

 

Amidst pots and pans

And smells of grease

I could not help but overhear

This common refrain

 

Joy in their voices

Horrified at their logic

They have no clue

What it would really mean

 

A neat little pagage

They think they have

Where all is pretty

Nothing sad

 

Their ice cream man

Will drive the truck

Through the neighborhood

Picking them up

 

Yet out of sight

He runs over

Will eternally torture

Those who don't buy his product

 

And  the population

Of this planet

Their logic requires

The rest to be trash

 

These ice cream men

Compete for territory

Market poison

For self glory

 

I would thank all

To remember

Those outside you

Live here too

 

I would not

Belong to a club

That threatens hell

If you don't join

 

He is an asshole

To demand my submission

Who gave  me a brain

Condemns me for thinking

Skittles Are LAXatives, By

Skittles Are LAXatives, By Brian37

 

Guns guns

We need more guns

If you object

You are a tyrant

 

And in Tinsel Town

Another took place

But if the sane

Object to the NRA

 

We are the bad guys

For wanting safe streets

For wanting safe theaters

For wanting safe schools

 

This is not a movie

You are not John Wayne

You are not Dirty Harry

For defending the industry

 

This is not

And never was

About your rights

And is merely about corporate profits

 

If 300 million

Guns in circulation

Is not enough

You are FUCKED IN THE HEAD.

  Guns in every home  Guns

  Guns in every home

  Guns in every school

  Guns on every playgound

  Guns rule.

 

 A gun is not a penis

 A gun is just a tool

 If you can't tell the difference

 Then you're a fucking fool.

    Bullets are my

 

 

  Bullets are my friends

  They never let me down

  Shiny copper jackets

  For the bad side of town

 

  My gun is in my pocket

  Always watching over me

  Making sure I get home safely

  And remember proper shot placement

  is always the key

 

  Double tap, double tap

  Please leave me alone

  Or else I'll double tap you

  And drill you to the bone

  Guns, guns and more

  Guns, guns and more guns

  Is there ever enough ?

  Brian rants and raves

  And spouts the same old stuff

 

  He's just a left wing nut job

  Sensitive and pure

  He always has the answer

  He always has the cure

 

  He worries about theists

  They're behind every tree

  Lurking here and there

  Please Brian set us free !

 

  He thinks guns are weenies

  And that is why they're long

  But why would I do that

  When I already have a dong ?

  Brian is whiner  He

  Brian is whiner

  He likes to moan and cry

  He's just a drama queen

  And I really don't know why

 

  He wants to fight the Christians

  And put them in their place

  But his psychotic break

  Is just a fucking disgrace

 

  He never shuts his mouth

  He's on a mission don't you know

  No matter where he shows up

  It's always Brian's show.

Response To My Detractors,

Response To My Detractors, By Brian37

 

A gun is a tool

But it is treated like candy

Too many people with a fetish

Who think they're fine and dandy

 

Call me all you want

A flaming drama queen

In the next 24 hours

34 more will leave the scene

 

Do not argue with me

Tell it to survivers

Tell it to their family members

Who have to bury them

 

Goddamn fucking right

I am going to scream

I am tired of hearing about gun death

On my tv screen

 

And as far as "Christians"

You know as well as I

Atheists go after all religions

Based on myths and lies

 

Sunnis killing Shiites

Both oppressing women

Christians in North Carolina

Banning gay marriage

 

Rape far too rampant

In that of India

LDS girls and women

Living in Island prisons

 

I find it very sick

You'd be more concerned

Of my offending others

Than the physical harm they do

 

Thank you for the attention

You think I should not have

It has the opposite affect

Then that of your intent

   Brian is all butthurt 

 

  Brian is all butthurt  if it's death by gun

  But when people die from other means

  He's completely mum

 

  Drown in a pool

  That's okay

  You're gonna die anyway

                    The most extreme of extremists

                    He only brings us shame

Your the one that posted my picture, just like anti abortion nuts post names faces and places of abortion providers. Not that I am scared. Too much of a coward to beat me up yourself? So you post my picture to "wink" at others as if to imply "hey PC atheists or theists if you see this guy, WINK WINK, you know what to do", so since you didn't actually do it yourself you can absolve yourself from any responsibility if anything happens to me.

Is that what you want? You won't get a physical fight out of me, and if you did assault me you'd be the one going to jail, not me. That is what zealots do,  get physical when they get offended. 

Now you are going about this the wrong way. If we want theists to see us as individuals, then using "you make me look bad" is a stupid tactic. If you want to make a better argument, rather than lumping me up with all atheists, just simply call me the asshole you think I am.

 

And yes, I am an asshole to people who force women to wear burkas and wont let them drive. I am an asshole to dicks who shoot girls who merely want an education. I am an asshole to people who use voting based on religion to deny gays equal rights. I am an asshole to people who want to use laws based on religion to control the bodies of women.

 

You want to judge me for my cussing and blasphemy, when that is all I do compared to people who get physical when they don't like what they hear. Kinda like you posting my picture in hopes someone will "take action".

 

Merely being offensive does not make me a zealot or even a bigot.

 

And making fun of ABBA? You think that really hurts my feelings?

 

Now just simply say "fuck you Brian I don't like you, you are an asshole". The difference is when other people offend me I simply make a choice. I either bitch back, or ignore them.

 

And again, you are also bringing me attention you say I don't deserve. Not so smart considering that you know I will respond which bumps up the post again.

Other types of death

Bother me as well

Like when people make god claims

And threaten you with hell

 

Taking food stamps

Away from those in need

Causing the young and elderly

To chose between bills or feed

 

Dying kids in Africa

While some stupid jock

Kneels and points to god

You bitch about "Suck it Jesus"

 

It's ok for Kathy

Because she is funny and rich

To point out the fucked up priorities

Of those well off and famous

 

I think your priorities

Are way out of whack

You are more concerned with blasphemy

Than the violence that does exist.

 

Don't you lecture me

About what I should not say

Religion needs offending

To keep it in its place

 

If you think there is no harm

Done by the religious

You are out of you head

If you think we should never question it.

 

If thus you think

Then by all means

Walk the streets of Saudi Arabia

Without even cussing

 

Tell their population

Allah is not real

That is all you have to do

To end up dead or in jail

 

And even here

In the states

We have gullible morons

Who attack science with glee

 

You paint me as the bad guy

You are the fool

Progress was never made

When taboos are the norm

I am in the picture. I know when the picture was taken, and no not paranoid. Secondly, even if you are just fucking with me, there are people who wouldn't simply be talking smack and having been yelled at and having had someone try to fire me, this isn't about you or your attempt to put a mirror to my face. If I was paranoid I wouldn't have allowed anyone to take the picture. I wouldn't have gone to the event at all. And none of what I have said in my criticism of religion and blasphemy of religion is new.

I think you were trying to say "This is what you look like to others", and I've already said I don't care. Religion needs offending. Not to get rid of it, but keep it off it's undeserved pedestal.

 

Zealots get physical. Zealots pass laws that deny rights and oppress others. All I am doing is bitching. You can call me a zealot when I act out in violence or pass laws denying rights to others. Neither of which I have any desire or plans to do.

 

No I do NOT think I am important. If I die tomorrow people will still be alive and will still make babies. But that does not mean I cant speak out.

Your attempt at brinkmanship to silence, or modify my behavior , by trying to embarrass me or shame me wont work.

 

I find it offensive when someone is more concerned with language and the "magic" of words than the actual physical violence done by humans on other humans. It is not bullying to call something bullshit. It is not zealotry to say books of myth are not science. It is not tyranny to say "you treat your women like shit".

 

There ARE plenty of people when merely offended will act out in violence, I am not one of them.

   Again, you stupid dork, that picture is posted on another thread from the Rational Response Squad, does that mean Sapient is a "co-conspirator" in this assassination plot by allowing your picture to be posted on his web site ?

I am in the picture. I know when the picture was taken, and no not paranoid. Secondly, even if you are just fucking with me, there are people who wouldn't simply be talking smack and having been yelled at and having had someone try to fire me, this isn't about you or your attempt to put a mirror to my face. If I was paranoid I wouldn't have allowed anyone to take the picture. I wouldn't have gone to the event at all. And none of what I have said in my criticism of religion and blasphemy of religion is new.

I think you were trying to say "This is what you look like to others", and I've already said I don't care. Religion needs offending. Not to get rid of it, but keep it off it's undeserved pedestal.

 

Zealots get physical. Zealots pass laws that deny rights and oppress others. All I am doing is bitching. You can call me a zealot when I act out in violence or pass laws denying rights to others. Neither of which I have any desire or plans to do.

 

No I do NOT think I am important. If I die tomorrow people will still be alive and will still make babies. But that does not mean I cant speak out.

Your attempt at brinkmanship to silence, or modify my behavior , by trying to embarrass me or shame me wont work.

 

I find it offensive when someone is more concerned with language and the "magic" of words than the actual physical violence done by humans on other humans. It is not bullying to call something bullshit. It is not zealotry to say books of myth are not science. It is not tyranny to say "you treat your women like shit".

 

There ARE plenty of people when merely offended will act out in violence, I am not one of them.

Ha ha ha, no no no,  again, go back and read my post. You posted it in the context of "Look at this zealot", meaning "this is how people view you". This wasn't merely "Hey here is Brian at an atheist convention".

 

Now, I wish people were not stuck on the magic of words, but by some saying "you make atheists look bad", and "you look like a zealot", my picture circulating around gives, not me per say, but lends credence to any justification a fundy might have to harm me, or other atheists. And having seen the mere reaction by others, who not knowing me personally, whom merely run into me on the street, I can tell you, just the sight of the word causes people to tense up and without the laws in place to protect me, they would do harm to me, even if I never made a single post on the web ever.

To think that never happens is absurd. Not to just atheists, but other minorities fundies might surround. Malala got shot, and she wasn't an atheist. Her outspokenness got her shot, and wanting an education might as well been literally saying to them "fuck you"She wasn't impolite or cussing at them, but to them it might as well have been "fuck you". . Just like the guy who shouted at me just upon seeing the word. Just like the guy who tried to have me fired, merely for seeing the word. This isn't an internet issue, this shit happens to atheists worldwide all the time, and to people who are NOT vocal like me. I've had it tame compared to others.

Christians, gays and non Shiites living in Iran, have it bad. At best they can live as long as they keep their mouth shut. The ones who survive. Merely suggesting any type of ideological dissent or religious dissent is trouble, even IF you are polite about it. Gays in Russia have it bad, not that it is much better here, although getting better.

 

I have heard countless stories of property damage, all the way to murder. Now while I am not afraid of Fred Phelps, this website IS open to the public worldwide where ever it is not banned. It only takes ONE nut.

 

That is why you need to treat me as an individual and also why our public fight here needs to be seen, so that theists do see us as individuals.

 

I'm sorry, but to blame me for cussing and blasphemy when the real crime is what is violence done in the name of religion, is absurd.  Civil adults simply bitch back, or ignore those who offend them.

Texas is really in a rather bad state with the new abortion stuff that is making the headlines. Off of the topic, but this line made me think of that.

Also off of the topic, but rather comical to me, is your signature about ARM THE CHILDREN. Especially after I clicked on the link and saw what it was about Laughing out loud

Bitter Almonds, By

Bitter Almonds, By Brian37

 

A baby set on fire

As a sacrifice

Because a fucking nut

Thought she was the antichrist

 

A girl in Morocco

Committed suicide

Rather than marry her rapist

A sentence a court decided

 

Fatwas called by clerics

On the mission to Mars

Girls getting shot

For education she desires

 

Laws  proposed in Virgina

Demanding ultra sound

Women in control

Cannot be allowed

 

9/11 and dark ages

Sharia law as well

To those who demand taboos

Can rot in their fictional hell

 

Poison is all it is

And will ever be

I will never allow my intellect

To cover for credulity

 

It isn't human rights

So don't pull that dodge

It is your refusal to look in the mirror

At the human cost.

Costumes, By Brian37 Magic

Costumes, By Brian37

 

Magic underwear

Jews with curly hair

A collar around a neck

Ash on the forehead

 

Dots alleged eyes

Monks in drab robes

Turbans on their heads

All a silly show

 

Graduation gowns

Singing in a chior

As if it were an education

Proving a higher power

 

Men wearing suits

Smiling and smug

Gullible part with money

At the calling of a drug

 

Cruise ship in style

Are the garb of some

While the Jiffy Pop hats

Cover the dreads of others

 

Cloths will not protect you

They have no magic power

They do not make you special

Or give you an ivory tower

 

You will not burn in hell

If you cut your hair

You will not  burst in flames

If of thus you don't partake

 

Cloths of superstition

Are nothing but costumes

"Signifying nothing"

Except human's wishful thinking

Water It Down, By

Water It Down, By Brian37

 

The way it stay's relevant

The way it adapts

Even without evidence

Water it down

 

To take it literally

With all the absurdity

To take it seriously

You'd become a monster

 

Water it down

Change the meaning

When inconvenient

When contradictory

 

Water it down

Pick a version

Water it down

As a diversion

 

No Nobel Prize

Will you win

No patient office

It's ever seen

 

Water it down

To pretend

That your fantasy

Is more than that

 

He is here

He is there

With no material

Still everywhere

 

Water it down

To hold on to it

Like a kid with Santa

Despite its' myth

 

As Twain said

And rightfully so

Understanding

Was what led him away.

 

Like "seals to mermaids"

Telescopes to kaleidoscopes

Facts crush fantasy

And always will

 

Water it down

All you will

Your scam will sink

In it's own swill.

(End).

 

If I am correct Twain compared superstition like seals to mermaids.

The Newborn, By

The Newborn, By Brian37

 

There is no exception

In our species

To the newborns

That history breeds

 

Of holy books

And politics

What of the newborn

Can understand thus?

 

Pluck them randomly

At tender age

Put them in a room

They'll form their own groups

 

Adults abuse them

By feeding them tribalism

"Us vs them"

Instead of critical thinking

 

Products of culture

Without skills in logic

To discern

We are not different

 

Let them grow

On their own

Educate them

Without indoctrination

 

That an eye is an eye

An arm is an arm

A limb is a limb

That none should harm

 

Be not concerned

Of blasphemy

Teach them to question

Everything

 

Fill them not

With vacuous stories

Feed them intead

That of inquiry

 

Better in scope

They will be shaped

To deal with resolutions

In the face of conflict

 

Our differences

Will never change

The empty brains

We all start out with

Sports Center, By

Sports Center, By Brian37

 

The Yankees won the Superbowl

The Miami Heat

Won Wimbledon,

Didn't you know

 

The Redskins won

The Skins Game

Just ignore

These absurd claims

 

Yet it is a virtue

To blindly believe

In invisible friends

With all sorts of names

 

And all the jocks

With lucky socks

In the form of collars and turbans

And Yamicas

 

Play this game

Of "lets pretend"

In hockey rinks

With no ice or sticks

 

And the stats

Prattled over and over

Scores of bloodshed

On the field of dreams

 

The soccer fans

Are the mobs

Angered by rivals

Over superstition

 

Their buildings grand

Tradition of nothing

The corporate names

We call religion

Devil's Disciple, By

"Devil's Disciple", By Brian37 (Title named after the movie I wrote it about).

 

In days of Redcoats

This movie portrayed

The unseemly hero

 A pastor he saved

 

Redcoats had hung

As a warning

The pastor objected

To leave a man swinging

 

That night unknown

The body cut down

The Pastor falsely accused

Thus did not do

 

The blasphemous hero

Who had challenged the pastor

"You believe out of fear

And that's all there is"

 

Upon reading his fathers will

Whom the British had hung

Pointed out the family's hypocrisy

Of all their greed

 

The British saught

The the traitor out

Yet the Pastor cut not

The hung man down

 

Upon arriving at

The Pastor"s house

The real guilty party

Was guest to his wife

 

So the heathen

Did pretend

To be the Pastor

To save innocent skin

 

As they walked him

To the gallows

The heathen spoke

To yet another

 

Another man

of the cloth

There to give him

His last rights

 

As the heathen

Who saved the other

When he passed

Said of this such

 

"Thou shalt not kill"

But ironically

The Pastor he saved

Had left his position

 

Gave up his title

To fight the British

Only to find

What the heathen had done

(end)

 

This a poem I wrote after watching a 1959 movie "Devil's Disciple",  with Kirk Douglas(The heathen character who questions the piety of his family and the pastor Burt Lancaster. Now mind you by "heathen" I don't mean atheist. That is never implied in the movie. Just that he is the "rebel" the "questioner".

 

The heathen's  father is accused of treason and hung. The pastor objects to the British the body being left on display as a warning. But as the movie implies, you think at first the Pastor had cut the body down, but the heathen had done it. The British come after the Pastor but find the heathen at the home of the Pastor with the wife, but think he is the Pastor so he lets them think it to save the Pastor's life.n (Wont spoil the ending though)

 

The other thing about this movie is that it does show that you push any human far enough they will defend themselves, which in this movie, as to some degree in real life, to say that religious people will not get violent when pushed, is absurd. True, it is a movie, but in real life holy men of all religions are STILL human and push any human far enough, they will react. Lancaster(the pastor) drops his title to join the rebels against the British.

Issac's Haze, By

Issac's Haze, By Brian37

 

Everyone is fine

Until you get to them

Ready to blaspheme others

Ready to condemn

 

Jews attack Muslims

And Muslims onto Jews

Christians attack Muslims

Attacking atheists too

 

Then the PC left

Tries to patch it up

"Don't attack anyone"

Forgetting long term cost

 

If we all insist

Never to offend

The government we live under

Might not agree with us

 

Issac had no problem

When Mary's ass did bleed

Or when Richard Dawkins

Made it with a tranny

 

But the stupid fuck

Went and quit the show

When it got to Scientology

His top he did blow

 

Now as some read

Who also do not believe

Will blaspheme my blasphemy

Calling me ignorant and mean

 

But there is a difference

Cease I would not insist

I understanding  of our reality

That many may not like me

 

The freedom to offend

Doesn't mean always

My only ban on anything

Is "never" as a tactic

 

We far too often forget

In parts of the world

The mere act of disagreement

No matter how polite

 

No matter how polite

Can get you jailed

Or beaten up by mobs

Or by government execution

 

Most of you who read this

Will go to bed tonight

Without fear of reprisal

In agreement or dissent

 

Others who may read this

May do so in secret

In fear of their family

Or government under which they live

 

So when you bitch and moan

About my blasphemy

Just remember I won't kill you

No matter what you say

Of Limbs And Silence, By

Of Limbs And Silence, By Brian37

 

What is one

To do

When someone

Demands a taboo

 

And if of this

So you question

Silence they demand

Wanting your submission

 

Even though

What they claim

Insults human rights

And human dignity

 

What do you do

When they insist

That their written word

Is better than science

 

What do you do

In that silence

If in interest

Of keeping peace

 

Of keeping peace

Fosters harm to others

Doesn't that complacency

Amount to complicity?

 

What do you do

When they wont accept

That no harm you wish

Just appeal to intellect

 

Delusions in mass

Will cause harm

Only a fool

Would not challenge them

I am BrianI am so deepMy

I am Brian

I am so deep

My poetry stinks

just like my feet

 

I bitch and moan

Most every day

Most people wish

I'd go away

 

I am righteous

I am pure

My poetry stinks

Just like manure

 

Beyond I hate

And Ayn Rand

Compared to them

I'm not a man

 

I'm small and weak

And oh so timid

Alpha Males

Make me livid

 

I love the Left

For them I live

I'll take your stuff

And you'll give, give, give

 

Guns are evil

That's for sure

they sell like candy

I have no cure

 

I'm a poet

And oh so rare

With special insights

That I must share

 

The GOP

They're oh so bad

My god Obama

Makes me glad.

Expiration Date, By

Expiration Date, By Brian37

 

In days of antiquity

Rampant mythology

Mono and poly

Dominated everything

 

But the beef has turned

The bread has mold

The stench of the fish

It is too old

 

How to kill livestock

How to beat slaves

How to kill others

Not of the same tribe

 

None of those books

Speak of modern things

That of cell phones

Or DNA

 

What causes viruses

Or that of bacteria

That of entropy

Or thermodynamics

 

The earth was made

The believer claims

In a mere 6 days

Despite what science says

 

1 ray of light

Will have to take

100 thousand years

To cross our galaxy

 

Past the "Use by"

We know it is

No matter the wishes

Of the minds it stays in

 

It only persists

Because of marketing

Look for excuses

Is not the same as testing

 

In the light

Of better data

Incumbent we should be

To move on without it

Meter, By Brian37 Pasta is

Meter, By Brian37

 

Pasta is done

In many ways

Alfredo to macaroni

The same with Sushi

 

It's not all Haiku

Or Iambic pentameter

Not all beatnik

Or soliloquy

 

It is not all Seurat

The simple truth

About all art

It is that which works

Kill The Shadows, By

Kill The Shadows, By Brian37

 

In my youth

I was afraid

Of the unknown

Of things "bigger" than me

 

In twilight hours

I feared the slumber

And the images

On my darkened walls

 

The twitching shaddows

Frightened me

The twisted limbs

Kept me awake

 

Always would I

Lose this fight

Succumb to sleep

Despite my fright

 

Now I know

It was merely

My own ignorance

Frightening me

 

Tree branches

Swaying in the wind

Undulating on my walls

In an attempt to grab me

 

Unfortunately most

Don't wake up

To know the god they worship

Are branches on the night time wall

Prozac you never hug out at

Prozac you never hug out at Infidel Guy before I brought my work here. You have no idea how many people have actually read them. Brian does not have this website set up to show you how many times each thread is viewed.

 

And long before I even posted them on his website I have been writing since 91. I've gotten plenty of complements on many of them. Been asked for my autograph on them as well. Had a entire Unitarian Church give me very loud applause after reading one about 9/11 to them back in 01.

 

Never said all of them were great, but you haven't read all of them. Your negative noise won't affect me. Especially not on the issue of my poetry.

Not only here but with other topics you seem and others seem to be taking me way to seriously. And what gets me is you have no problem blaspheming me and criticizing me, and you don't see me demanding anyone's silence.

 

I do and I don't take myself seriously. I do in the sense that I find it important to speak my mind. And you are talking to a very sensitive person outside any issues. I was bullied as a kid, and it wasn't until I stopped making other people's baggage mine, that I lost my fear.

But no, I don't take myself seriously in the sense that it is the end of the world if someone picks on me, that is the old me.

 

I was, in all seriousness impressed with your "words words words words words" Jab at me, not because I really think I suck.

I actually DO understand where that comes from, and long before Brian created this board, on Infidel Guy, the former home of my poetry, I had gotten that criticism before. Some people hate the boring block style I use, so you are not the first to point that out. I do do it for a reason though. I am a message guy and simplicity guy. I have read too much and written to much to be stuck on a "right way". It really is what works for the reader. But I also got lots of complements too.

 

I belonged to a poetry group in the early 90s. There was old guy named Stewart, he had problems with everyone's poetry. He slammed other people's poems I loved, but the guy all of us considered the most talented in the group named Sam(There is a poem about him in this thread somewhere), even had a problem with him.

 

He had picked on another ladies poem I loved, and at the next meeting I read a polite " f- you" in front of everyone, they loved it. I forgot the title but it is also in this thread "Share The Rainbow" or something like that.

 

He also pissed enough of us off one time because he hated untitled poems, so one meeting after he left we all decided to to write untitled poems. Now he wasn't a bad poet himself, but most of us didn't like his judgmental attitude. He simply didn't like some things, that is the same for all of us.

 

"A Stone" is somewhere in this thread. That was my most popular poem of that time, so much so that others in that group wanted autographed copies. And if you go through the entire thread there are a couple of complements.

 

And here is a link from atheistforums.com

Thanks, Brian, for the info on Hypatia. Truly ahead of her time. Very sad.

 

"Hypatia" also in this thread somewhere.

 

You don't seem to understand me. I was that guy that wanted to fit in. I was that guy that would cry and want people to like me. The beauty of getting older is it is a relief to not give a fuck and just be yourself. That is how you can be serious and not take yourself seriously at the same time.

 

Anyone out to get it right all the time will fail, anyone who keeps doing it enough will get lucky, and it only takes once to get lucky.

Beyond is the victim? Please spare me. How many threads has he made about Obama? You'd have a case if I put a gun to his head and forced him to post his tripe.

 

I know you are a critic about my art.  Get in line and take a number.

He had no problem purposely  trashing others works in front of everyone at those meetings. So yea, I did. And not just me. My "f-you" poem was one meeting, and just me vs him at that time. "The "untitled" pile on was not my idea, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't in agreement.

 

I HATE Beyond's economic views with a passion. But out of all the people I debate here at least what he presents to me in response has the thick skin I wish I had had in my youth. I'd like the world to be more adapt to bitching than to getting physical when offended. I am sure he wants to strangle me and I know I want to strangle him. So since that is not legal, lets just bitch and call it a day.

   Well then you still haven't answered why you even bothered to post about my "blaspheming" and "criticizing" you ?    If it's okay for you to do it to someone else why are you even bringing it up ? 

 

                                                                                Still no answer ?  Was the question too hard ?   Can't find the proper "words" ?

  Brian and his many faces

 

 Brian37, so sanctimonious

 And smug

 Preaching to other atheists

 Is his favorite drug

 

 He's got all the answers

 He will set you straight

 He's so fucking enlightened

 And his poetry is "great"

 

 It's sin to blaspheme

 And to criticize is bad

 But when Brian wants to do it

 It makes him fucking glad

 

 Brian looks into a mirror

 But still can't see himself

 A twisted little bastard

 With fucked up mental health

Yes mentally ill because all I do is post. Have you become my stalker? Meh, free advertisment. Thanks for the bump.

 

I'ts not a sin to blaspheme because "sin" is a mythological word meaning nothing. Now if you want to say "context" of when where and why you blaspheme, that'd be a better argument. 

 

I never said

I had all the answers

I never said

"Don't speak ill of me"

 

You call me mentally ill

Yet so you respond

To all my posts

Repeatedly

 

"Sanctimonious

Of me you describe

"You hurt my feelings"

Have you ever heard me cry?

 

I am not saying

Anything that's new

From other atheists

To the famous we all know

 

I find it funny

You would single me out

And after 7  years of posting

Suddenly now you speak up?

 

No one has to like me

That is the lesson in this

The worst a human should suffer

Is hearing others bitch.

 

I have a thicker skin

Than I think you know

I don't think you defend others

Even if you think you do.

 

The harm done to humans

Is when they take their delusions

Apply it to politics

And set up taboos

 

Make another poem

Take another jab

Thank you for bump

That does make me glad.
