5 'Religious' Limericks.... [some 2006 thoughts of an agnostic humanitarian (me) ]

1

Who, In Their Right Minds, Would Waste So Much Time?


God may have made the Earth “way-back-when”;
there may be no real end.....to God’s ken.
But I would be wary
to call the dictionary....
an act of God instead of “crazy” men.

Life After Death For Apes?

Orangutan died in its zoo cell.
I wonder, “Do big apes go to Hell?
Do they Heaven reach?
Or do some go to each, ....
or (I believe) just to dust from gel? ”

Therefore I Became And Still Am An Agnostic

Four decades past, I still went to church.
Then maturing thoughts left me in a lurch.
Zion Church would not bend,
and Hell I could not defend.
AND....I’d no faith in a prayer search.

The Easy Way Is Not Always The Best Way

Cartoon portrayed a rebellious salmon.....
passing those who upstream were jammin’.
His sign said “Go With The Flow”,
but, as most of you know,
“flow” can corrupt though you reach mammon.

It’s Not Much But It Makes Me Feel Better

Come tomorrow I may spend a grand,
sitting, writing checks, I’ll make my stand ….
against AIDS and poverty,
and inequality,
and loss of Nature. I lend a hand.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i had trouble saving this in the computer. was Someone trying to tell me something? ?

as for #1....i guess the dictionary serves a good purpose, but, REALLY, have you taken a good look at one recently? (i have a big paper one i still use when away from computer.)
there is so much i don't need to know and i'm sure few people have any idea of all the stuff stuffed into a big dictionary. if God created things, He/She/It could have made life simpler if there was one 'simple' language for all humans to speak/write and we would know the language when born.

as for #2....if i DID get to Heaven (or, more likely, Hell) i think i would enjoy seeing apes and other animals and plants. well, i guess Hell is not supposed to be enjoyable. but there might be poison snakes and poison ivy in Hell.

as for #3.....besides my belief in dinosaurs and 'evolution' not agreeing with my church's teachings, i also could not (did not wish to) believe in a God who (though 'loving' etc.) would cause/allow so much pain and destruction among humankind.

as for #4.....i don't remember exactly what i was thinking as i wrote this one. was i the 'rebellious salmon' or did i think 'believers' were? ? anyway, the mass of salmon were swimming and jumping against the current to reach the spawning areas (and then die, so i've heard, after doing fish-sex) . The rebellious salmon was taking the easy way (or suggesting it) which would be swimming with the water flow away from the spawning areas. 'jammin''=jamming. i meant crowding and pushing upstream, but i guess it could refer to 'dancing' their way(s) upstream.

as for #5......i especially support pro-choice groups, and a feed-the-hungry group (to feed americans in need) (no offense meant toward the hungry in other countries!) . :)
