Why I Am Not A Christian


About a decade had passed
Bertrand Russell had written
Why I Am Not a Christian
In 1957

It was an Essay
An effort to perform or attempt
A French Word
In writing

'In God we trust'
That was an official motto
In USA replacing 1782
In 1956

Revolutions
Bravely speaking out
Even against the God
Against the Lord

But he was also against
Mass production
Globalization
Slavery

The world’s need for needle
Is limited so if...
The question was
What if...?

What if machine fulfills
A year’s need
In a day
What then?

Unemployment
Jobless machine
He said and...And?
His comment fell on deaf ears

Ownership of wealth is
99% holding one percent
And One percent 99%
Get ready for disaster...

    I read through this expecting poetry but it seems like an article separated by stanzas about the writings of a man who was not a Christian because of political views. Understandable, the piece created more questions about technology and the advance of science as progress dictates, and it also addresses the personal observations on one inidividual amongst billions that make up this world. The choice of title effectively attracts the reader, but fails with a thud, as the discovery that the ideas and principles delineated were not original to the writer, but were the views and writings of another. In a way, this is subtle plagiarism. (Report) Reply

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
