Housewives

God is

like my father

 

God is an abusive husband

and we are all

battered housewives

He pummels us with pain and heartache

and disease and fear

We tremble and worry and grieve

He soothes and hushes and relieves and promises to change

We love and care and believe

Until the next black eye

Until the next bloody nose

Until…

Bonaparte

To die is nothing

To live defeated…

Is dying everyday

 

There is no immortality

But

The memory left in men

 

I shall survive

For my downfall

Raises me to greater heights

 

If Christ

Had never been crucified…

He’d never have been god
