Sermon from Under the Earth

Updated on January 2, 2014

blessed are the fools

who call themselves fools

for others will call them wise

blessed are those who cry out to the world with stammering tongues

crouching aching and sweating

over endless lines of gibberish that fall like drum beats from the tips of their frantic pens

for they will be called Earnest

blessed are the ones who suffer withdrawals


shaking and sweating

desperate for a drink or a fix

for I will make them High indeed!

blessed are the sexual "deviants"

cast away by the "holy" as unclean

for they know that no man or woman may call unclean

anything that God has declared clean

Blessed are those who shake their fists in rage

at the heavens, cursing them

for they will dance in the pouring rain

      nice poem, very poetic and idiomatic. I love the way your poem approach its readers. It's like saying something to us
