The Masterpiece


The beatings of the naked
 Inspired by: 

Kissing pussy-lips, freaks, murderers,
Men with switching hips, whores 
And other shadows over shadowed 
By our inner-most thoughts of puzzle pieces 
And spawning the most beautiful image

Everybody knows exactly what God wants: 
He loves the sound of preachers 
Making others afraid of themselves
Killing the poison child
(God always has his arms open for more angels to hold)
And telling faggots to close their assholes

Common is a masterpiece 
Creaters making art of hate

Their reason: 
The man behind Heaven's Gate.

What a lot of images of life...
Great work here!

Takes courage to not hold back like that, as well as to post pieces you know might ruffle the proverbial feathers. Props

'Common is a masterpiece' is a great line - very deep.

Beachanny said...

The business of religion; the mafia of the souls. Well captured in all its oddity here, Anthony.

Anthony Desmond said...

@Dustus yes, it does. I believe no one should hold back on their vision when it comes to art. & Thanks for stopping by as always guys!

Strong, forceful poetry.

Brave poet!

The imagery gets it all...and religion IS the opiate of the masses.

Great poem Anthony.."Creators making art of hate?...great statement...one must be careful what they are preaching and teaching....and many have killed thinking that is what God wanted....the art hate creates has never appealed to me....bkm

River said...

I agree with signed....bkm "Creators making art of hate? makes a powerful statement about religion. I am impressed. Great work. :)

lori said...

I agree with Dustus. This one had to take guts to put out there. And, I also agree with Brian. God is more progressive than many who claim to serve him. Having said all that, you used words in a most powerful way, very strong. :)

Ya know what I love most--your fearless writing. Raw and real and to the point. Nice.

You don't mince words, do you. Let's hope your message reaches the right people.

If God was as many imagine, He would be a man.


Nice One Shot, Anthony!

i feel compelled to comment here...this line is brilliant...And telling faggots to close their assholes...

i am sick of the church decreeing what is right and wrong when they are prepared to let thousands die through the banning of contraception..

we just had a law case in the UK whereby a religious couple were banned from fostering children as they would not recognise homosexuality. They took this to court and the court threw out their claim as they have stated that equality and human rights COME before religious fervour...

cheers for this pete

Mama Zen said...

Absolutely brilliant.

"Making others afraid of themselves"...epic
Good job :)

repressedsoul said...

Doing stuff in the name of god...yep. Loved this, you've got such a wise head on your shoulders babe x

Steve Isaak said...

Stunning stuff. Seething with sentiments I strongly relate to - wish I'd written this. (Perhaps one of the highest praises I can offer any work.)

Jerry said...

God has taken so much heat in the name of religion. This is raw real stuff and shock is sometimes what we need to show awe to our creator. applause.

Shashi said...

Hi Anthony

Quite powerful and raw... and you took things common to uncommon grounds... good one shot.
