Christmas Poem After Connecticut Massacre

Christmas Poem After Connecticut Massacre

We killed God somewhere
Between inventing gunpowder
and researching DNA.

Evolved animals
Kill to eat
Few species advanced enough
Not to eat each other

Pigs are forbidden because
Their meat looks like ours
And tastes the same, some say

Jesus ate pork, or if he didn’t
Would have, if challenged
By priests

And Mohamed and the Buddha
Knew enough
Not to spawn religions

You and I spawn them
Let them rise and kill
And sow hatred

Who among us
Will not kill
A perceived enemy?

We learn lessons well
So advanced we are:

The real princes sowed peace
If one can believe them
And even if

God couldn’t stop our guns
Jesus weeps
With Obama on TV
