NOWLIFE
(9/23/10)


a superstitious
race
we began
the concept
of afterlife
to hold onto
our heroes
and loved
ones

darker natures
expanded
the role
to include
our villains
and enemies
as well

then
the spiritual
institutions
began to twist
and distort
our beliefs
letting Heaven
and Hell
serve
as welcoming palm
and punishing fist
to handily control
our current
lives

millennia
of fine tuning
have perfected
their perverted
arts
of promise
and fear

the time
has come
to turn our intellect
toward the strength
to act on reason
no matter
the institutional
coercion

no longer
the ignorant
peasants
of the past
we must release
our religions
and imaginations
to simply accept
the here
and now
of reality
