on organised religion

Christian, muslim, jew – god is

(let us grant it) but not how you mean it.

Is perhaps but as an abstract, not

a real person, a prime mover,

an architect, actor, an interested

party; a master of history

traversing the linear time-line

from zero to eternity.


There’s no such god.

When I was in Christchurch,

this guy was handing out leaflets.

I handed mine back & he said,

‘He’s up there watching us’.

I walked on, said nothing

but it came to me later –

what i should have said was Liar!


Because it’s true: there’s no excuse

for not knowing.
