Don Matthews on A pandemic is on the horizon far worse than the coronavirus (4 hours ago)
M.C. Newberry on A pandemic is on the horizon far worse than the coronavirus (7 hours ago)
From the dawn of man when he perceived
When he philosophised about conduct of the life to lead
Hallucination and myth began to unfold
The roots of religious dogma began to grow
Religious text stemmed from man made stories
Written by scholars to express their theories
Taking what you will from whatever you agree
But blind faith is foolish, it is so unreal

Beware the shadow by the corner dark,
For there he waits for seven reasons sour,
His wicked tongue hath limitless remark,
Whilst therein seeking whom he may devour.
Be sober and be vigilant thy kin,
Thy adversary waits beneath the pyre,
Then walks about as proud as the lion,
To drag thy wayward souls towards the fire.

Northern Lights (54th)
The Northern Lights are ablaze tonight
And, oh, I’m feeling down.
You never could just treat me right,
You always played around.
This fallen angel’s lost his wings
And come, at last, to ground –
While all the while my world turns
And those Northern Lights go round.
The heavens glow with neon arcs
The skyline blazes brigh...

Oh streets, your weeping cobbles shine
Against the moonlight, wailing sirens
Beckon those that have succumb
To fill your guttered lines with souls.
Blistered, bloated, wandering lost
Through invalid eyes – flies feast
On stale skin, as deep within
The eruptions pulse to a deathly drum.
One by one they fall in line
Upon swarming sewer drains,
Stacked, like broken branches cau...

I open my eyes
Life is strange, full of fear
I have lived many a year
Never looking at the bricks
Just staring at walls
Travelling on a narrow and winding road
A fork triplicating my soul
Religion provides a gleaming light
A golden dome forever bright
Questioning the Creator's proven might
Engrossed by tempting Masonic majesty
Praying to a...

No home, no job, just 12 good friends.
Betrayed by one who swore they never would.
Died too soon for pointless reasons.
What if God the NHS was one of us?

Angel from my nightmares.
Devil from my dreams
a grey spirit that weaves
its way through my existence.
What a Dementor does to souls
or a Dalek to a human heart.
Even a superhuman heart
Just ask Logan,
a force so strong
a returning phoenix
could not reignite remnants.
I miss you.
Whatever you ...

Don’t patronise me because I have found spirituality
In fact I pity thee who raise a barrier to inner peace
Don’t let negativity come between you and reality
Just because the Papacy used scripture and literacy to control the catholic community
Just because Christianity causes a lot of controversy when taken literally
Just because science a...

With the exceptions of some fine buildings and inspirational songs that have appeared here over the years,, I'm not a fan of man-made religions. I realised long ago, with the Crown Versus Church struggle, that it is
essentially about control. And the sight of those gorgeous robes and the rest of the paraphernalia on show
merely enforces my cynicism and finds me reverting to my school ...
