Tea? Anyone?

July 28, 2020

Paranoia brews dark

In perceived isolation

Steeped long in hot fear

Gathering gloom from

Last pages of old book

Every time is an end time

Except when it is not by

Moving the goal post

Adapting metaphors to

Present day problems

As concrete concoctions

Are literally impossible

Plus weren’t even transcribed

In the language used today

So is it quite possible

The truth was lost in

The translation to a

Language that didn’t even

Exist until about 600 BCE

What if a person had to learn

Aramaic Greek and Hebrew

To actually “know” the “truth”

Would they try to learn them

Or is it much easier to accept

The language that they

Perceive to understand

Some written revelation

That is so widely open to

Vague interpretation

Close enough to entice by

Myths innuendo and God

Distance never to be closed

It can be used today or

A century ago and still

Be seen as relevant

In time at the time

Specifics be dammed

“But these lunatics always go

“Well, ’cause it says in the Bible…”

Ok, stop, hang on.

I’m glad you like a book. I really am. At this point I’m glad that anybody’s reading anything. And I’m not even putting down the Bible.

Give it a read. The Bible is terrific! It’s got monsters and adventures, and, hey, if you like torture porn, check out the Old Testament! Oh man! Any Saw fans out there? Wooo! Get the Old Testament!”

– Patton Oswalt

It has come to my attention that a few of my fb friends (let’s call them at best, acquaintances), besides blasting their malignant methane memes.(farting out someone else’s opinion) Usually found on right-wing, conspiracy central, pro-45 websites.

They have moved on to the equivalent of parading around carrying a sandwich board sign, that states the “END IS NEAR…. REPENT”

Allegedly grown adults, happily married, with full time jobs, who as you have interacted with them, seem relatively reasonable.

Have taken over a digital street corner, shouting to anyone who is willing to listen. The dangers of not modifying one’s behavior to adapt to written words in an oversold book.

One that has been translated, modified, reduced, rewritten, revised, and for what?

Want to know when the world ends?

When the sun explodes……..

Until then have a good time.

“Take care of yourself and take care of somebody else.”

Besides…

“It’s just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.”

Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defences each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.”
