Oppression

Oppression

When Space ‘Angels’ brought Religions

to the species ‘Man’,

Oppression’s Feast of Fear actually began

through all the Binding Rules and Laws

of Must and Can’t or Can,

especially for the Gender birthing every Man.

Oppression feeds on Fear

throughout the World’s Ages

with so many bold Claims

to speak in God’s Names.

Oppression holds Power in so many ways

from false assumptions

and False appearing True.

God save us from your Followers,

especially the zealous-

those slaves from birth to death,

unquestioning, obedient

slaves to such Oppression

claiming Right of God

to persecute and kill.

God help us to Be Free at last,

Free at last!

Seeing Things

Sitting on some blasted rocks,

I sipped my cup of tea

between the state of reverie

and mindful possibilities-

that place for reading leaves.

I looked up then to see

drawings on a rock before me,

a curious mystery-

a dinosaur, an ape and stars,

creatures of the sea

and more of mystery.

Were these scribblings

made in fun and reverie

or stories to be told?

Are they childhood Art

made not long ago

or something very old,

I wondered quietly

then finished sipping tea.

The value of this Art

all depends on ‘When’.
