"The aching heart remains resists / Unsinkable and will not drown"
Of Nietzsche God and Mermaids
Nietzsche is dead yet God persists The lonesome town is falling down The aching heart remains resists Unsinkable and will not drown Despite the cold steel efforts of The cabal of conformity To suck originality From what we are and what we love
The shaking of their angry fists Seems impotent in retrospect If these damned fools are the elect Who mark us down in little lists Then dig up Nietzsche and ask him What we should do in times like these Descending with the cherubim Into triumphant vanities
They do not speak for God to me I swim with mermaids and caress Their shining skin and feel God bless Us in the sea since on the land The Hitlers of hypocrisy Who never say thank you nor please But only hate and make a mess Would not could never understand
