Dunno if there's a poetry thread but...

    here's me starting it out.
    Note: the opinions expressed here are partially my own, partially that of a friend of mine and partially an angry reaction to isis's actions in the middle east/north africa.

    the gods we leave behind
    in blasted mosques
    and dynamited shrines
    in prayers made of bullets
    and sermons told
    from atop the mountain
    made of child soldiers
    and civilians lost

    if they were real
    more than just the childish fantasies
    of a species grasping for answers
    we cannot attain
    they would hate those who claim their names
    who kill in the name of protecting
    omniscient deities who can do fine by themselves
    i would think

    what good has god given
    that He has not then taken
    ten hundred thousand times away?
    with inquisitions and crusades
    jihads and holy wars
    the black flag of isil waving
    the cross that Christ was tortured on
    now the symbol seen
    as cities burn.

    yet i still cannot
    mock those
    who in the name of god
    do good.

    So there's a story about why I'm posting in a thread created nearly two years ago, in the far off days of 2015. It starts with alcohol. (funny story. Typing skills are the last thing to go for me. I'm leaning in about six inches from my screen because I can't see what I'm doing otherwise, but there have only been a couple typos so far.) The middle part involves me getting bored and curious and deciding to look at the very last page of Kintsugi's general chatter forum. Lo and behold, I found this thread, and was inspired.
    Here, for the final part, without further ado, is the worst poem I have ever written.

    I'm wet, I'm hot,
    don't make me beg.
    Please stuff your meat
    between my legs.

    TheSeer 37 Bright Visionary Crushes The Doubtful

    Help me and hide me and carry me home
    I’m wounded and wistful and walking alone
    But you said you’d follow wherever I roam
    So help me and hide me and carry me home

    Love me and lift me and teach me to fly
    It’s been a long year and I’m missing the sky
    I don’t have my wings but I’d sure like to try
    So love me and lift me and teach me to fly

    Find me and fill me and let me go free
    There’s dust in the city and smoke in the trees
    They want me to save them, I can’t even breathe
    So find me and fill me and let me go free

    Come and say sorry and pay up your bet
    I ail in an age of disaster and debt
    I’ve faked a long time but I ain’t made it yet
    So come and say sorry and pay up your bet

    Stop me and stitch me and sop up my blood
    If I ever stumble and let slip the flood
    Each time I see morning is more to the good
    So stop me and stitch me and sop up my blood

    Help me and hide me and carry me home
    I’m wounded and wistful and think I’m alone
    But if you’re still out there, I’m worn to the bone
    Please help me, and hide me, and carry me home

    Hydrogen

    I am your central steam valve
    inching higher
    caffeinating,
    pacing,
    writing and erasing,
    staring out the window at your own
    unwelcome face

    welcome to the Hindenburg of yourself
    from midnight
    to sunlight
    for the third night in a row

    How may I conduct your explosion today?
