An agnostic's prayer



Part 2 of the trilogy begun with "Born again".

This poem is very much influenced by Dostoevsky's "The brothers Karamasov", which I'm labouring through at the moment. Father Zossima, I salute you sir and God bless you.

And hardly a rhyme to be seen.

May 2015 part 2

An agnostic’s Hymn

God bless you all
All you fascists
All you communists
All you dictators
All you torturers
Of innocents
Open your cells now
Feed the hungry

God bless you all
All you chauvinists
All you misogynists
All you misandrists
All suppressors    
Of gender equality
Open your hearts now
Feed the hungry

God bless you all
All you closed minded
All you racists
All you sexists
All you haters
Of diversity
Open your minds now
Feed the hungry

God bless you all
All you nationalists
All you monarchists
All you patriots
All of you proud
Flag wavers
Open your borders
Feed the hungry

God bless you all
All you fanatics
All you crusaders
All you Salafists
All instigators
Of holy war
Open your eyes now
Feed the hungry

God bless you all
All you wealth creators
All you corporatists  
All you tax evaders
All manufacturers 
Of cheap labour
Open your banks now
Feed the hungry

God bless you all
All you consumerists
All you materialists
All you narcissists
All ignorers
Of deprivation
Open your doors now
Feed the hungry.
