Exceptionshttp

By Mike O’Connell

gods
goddesses
used up drained
of power
influential
only to the dead
mark the destiny
of all things
mostly holy
once so deep in truth
they could not
contain themselves
when logic
assaulted their
vaunted images
showing them to be
vindictive
volatile
more evil
than the cloud
of whimsical tales
suggest
a trap
letting us believe
we can live forever
if we would only
sacrifice our souls
to the imaginary forces
that herd us into
corrals
hymn bound
drained of awareness
to the needs of now
misinterpreted
folded into heavens shared
by thousands of deities
where prayer pretends to
brush off the shamed
and auto-forgiven sins
except for
