Alan Bruce Thompson
Nietsche did not kill God, and Nietsche is dead,
Did these less than philosophical ideas run through his head?
To ridicule a myth is no difficult task,
But all they have done is to remove a mask.
Why are those so proud who threw God out?
With what did they replace him? With EGO they tout!
That's a sad truth, for without belief nothing's there,
To find your salvation, you will need to learn to care.
Whether you find God now may be your luck in Life,
It is said that belief can carry you through all of life's strife.
You should not fear God because SHe does not fear you,
Belief in a power greater than ourself may be what we need to carry us through.
We replaced God with electronics in our self-styled epod,
I am more almighty than SHe, you may call me EGOD.
