a corner of
the room swept
of a monster presiding
over a new age demonic
religion, vain talkers and deceivers,
cleansed of the tears we wept,
a witch's broom, a
light of brothel red, and
a Cherokee dreamcatcher
hangs from the ceiling above
We, of the
aloud a list of clergy
crimes where nothing
rhymes, and then it dawns
on us, yes, to leave the damn
religion behind that prayed too
hard to win over the prey at the crotch
of debt, a blackmailer's crime of misdirected
fornication, a man of the cloth's sick deed, but
not once did we give the satanic El Diablo hand sign,
that's us in
the corner, that's
us in the spotlight
losing our religion
under the watchful Eye
of Horus, lesbian polygamy
fucking under the new polytheism
watching pornography filmed in nature,
the woods alive with owls and the rut of elk,
the blood-engorged animal penis bending inside
the cow like Kundalini Yoga, our orgasm clearing our
channels of the Christian faith, that being part of a brain
implant of false memory by an evil cosmic priest,
We are New Age
channelers, free thinkers,
Feng Shui, our arrangement
of mind furnishings and theosophical
landscapes, lunar tides, tarot and runes,
Night of the Foal, the needles
restoring our balance, full moons,
the Sphinx's paw,
Edgar Cayce and Thoth,
the Emerald Tablets and REM
losing our religion and it's all been
recorded in Akashic Record, that's us in
the corner, that's us in the spotlight losing

|Like you said sister Sage we are new age thinkers. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed not becuase the inhabitants had same sex relations, but because they were lustful, hateful, selfish, and very very wicked. The nephilim destroyed these two cities on God's command.
The real culprits who have prostituted religion and raped the minds of ignorant people not knowing any better are the ones who have been formally ordained to preach the word of God. These rapists have raped the minds of men, women and even children in the hopes that they could obtain more followers for their own selfish purposes. The many Catholic churches try to out do the others in the soul saving department.
When Mary of Magdalene was going to be stoned as a prostitute, Jesus stood to her defense and said to the people, "let he who is without sin cast the first stone." All of Mary's accusers left without throwing one stone. But yet the ones formally ordained to preach God's word, have committed adultery in the Lord's eyes, by prostituting the word of God for monetary gain.
We are not the ones who are losing our religion, it has been lost for us many many centuries ago by hypocrite non-believers who would rather practice literally the preachings of the Old Testasent, than abide by the teachings of Jesus, the son of God.
I'm going to stop, because this is a very sore spot for me. Thank you for sharing sister Sage.
May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side contantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

|A tour de force on the evils of religion. Lost mine a long time ago. You really got the point here and I hope it reaches those who are still blind to the devil around them.

|Incredible musicality to the first 2 stanzas really pulled me in! Great poetry and elite writing from a master mistress of the pen. And as for today's religionists,and the modern distortion of most religions currently espoused, it is a good thing to be losing!|

|You have referenced one of my favorite REM songs, and gone far beyond their lyric in expressing the spiritual plethora vying for hearts and minds in our modern world. I admire your lyricism and your sage wisdom (and no, I am not merely being cute when I say that.) I will read this again several times before I feel I have gotten it. That is for me the mark of an excellent poem.|

|Great poetry as always Sage! I find it rather ironic that I agree with Marx when he said "religion is the opium of the people." I'm still on a rather hopelessly hopeful quest to bring salvation to all religions in the form of hugs and love and harmony and peace and....well, you know...maybe some restraint from killing each other.
Peace and cleared channels,

|Very insightful, and like Patrick I gave up organized religion years ago as well (raised a staunch Catholic). Reading, and history and the reality of the world around me made me face the reality of my own spirituality. I still believe in a higher power but what form that power may eventually manifest itself remainds at least to me a mystery to come.

|This is precisely why I gave up on organized religion years ago. Beliefs that drive people to madness or worse by covering it up.
W.C. Fields said it best, "Everybody believes in something, I believe I'll have another beer.

|"...and let our hands have strength to pull the crumbling vaults of spurious heavens down and from their shards erect a monument to our own sweet indulgence." --simply amazing poetry sage, love the interjection of music into the flowing, poetic diatribe, great wheel with angles in dimensions unrecognized. madame blavatsky would be proud:-)|

|Illuminati to Freemason, Dreamcatcher to EdgarCayce. Many beliefs, many religions, each believing they are the chosen ones. Yet the common theme reflects humanity with all its rights and wrongs.
