God's Gifts


This poem will be dissected, -

then be taken apart by two sides.

One so devout that only the Bible can have God’s gift.

The other saying there is no such thing that bears God’s gifts.

Somewhere in-between reigns the faith of individual conviction.


Some say one must belong to one certain religious denomination.

Others will say He exists all around us, within every of everything.

But others only find God in a Church, or in Sunday’s true religion.

That Sunnis Shiites, Catholic Protestants, and others fight over it.


History is full of wars that were fought for slight deviations.

The first thing politicians do is - expose their pure virtuous faith.

Then proceeds to whore around, as lavish Tiffany role models.

These Demigods proceed to preach to their devoted flocks.


Golden Idol false prophets, never show God’s birthday suit.

They wear brand names, and sign daemon pledge contracts

That God bless America’s 10% population –

 where 1% run Think Tanks,

Signed Made in America ALEC pledge legislation –

brings economic segregation.


God’s gift within a Republican Democrat autocracy,

Is different from,

God’s gift in blessing America with Democracy and Freedom.

That in having a choice of a Private Equity chainsaw future,

And whitewashed Reagan Democrats with Democratic roots,

Is like a Putin choice for “Real Change.”

That God Bless Made in America is about a 100% total gift,

Wherein the American Dream of individual faith can flourish.


Can I say more?


Will it do any good?


Because in America today, Free Speech has Demigod owners,

Even Biblical David would find it hard to defeat their Internet.

That slingshot Spring of Democracy has met Moses’ Pharaoh

Boa constrictor, subjecting God’s lambs through filters

Upon Dark Ages Inquisition - creating a Demigod World Order.


God’s gifts can never be shackled, imprisoned, or defeated

That in the Will of God, He puts iron wills within our souls.

That His Universe also lies within our Uni-Verse minds

That one proclaims their Declaration of Independence.

That is totally N.U.T.S.

Never Under Threat Surrender

God’s Gifts.
