God

In the beginning
All was there
Eating the fruit
Broke the love affair
Of man and his maker
Woman her nature
God could not be found
Anywhere.

Among the chaos
Noah rose up
Building an ark
In the midst of dry land
Two by two
They all went through
Forty days later
Survivors were few.

Many years later
Came Abraham
“Worship one God”
Was his programme
Nearly sacrificed his son
To show everyone
That a merciful God
Was indeed still around.

Then came Moses
“Let my people go!”
His consistent message
To the stubborn Pharaoh
Plagues hit the land
Sea parted by a hand
Grave for those
Who failed to understand.

Then there was Jesus
A virgin conception?
He walked the Earth
To change our perception
“I AM” the way
The truth and the life
Follow me and there
Will never be strife!

But put to death
By murderous man
That long black Friday
New era began
2000 years
Are now at hand
His name is still preached
Throughout the lands.

But are these stories
Really true
Or fictional tales
Pure gobbledygook
Duping one’s mind
Deceiving the mind?
This is a question
I ask of you.

If you say ‘yes’
These stories are real
The concept of God
Has masses of appeal
If you say ‘no’
These stories are false
You live then die
Riding off in a hearse.

You wont be the first
Or certainly the last
To taste hell-fire
With the other outcasts?
For many prophets
Have come and gone
Preaching monotheism
Worship one God.

A framework to save
Man from the grave
So after death
One can live on
And on
And on
And on
And on.
