An atheist view of Genesis

                           Genesis Revisted

                          In the beginning
                          God created unending
                          anguish between
                          man and woman:
                          on the Second Day
                          ferocious, unspeakable
                          battles among
                          angry nations:
                          on the Third
                          ancient hatred
                          between rich and poor:
                          on the fourth,
                          blood red mayham
                          between black and
                          white, red and brown:
                          on the fifth,
                          rightous slaughter
                          among the faithful,
                          Christian, Jew,
                          Muslim, Hindu --
                          it hardly matters:
                          on the Sixth Day, a
                          raging war was brought
                          forth from us upon
                          ourselves, yes, upon
                          the weeping earth,
                          whose species
                          are trembling now in
                          in mortal horror.
                          Then on the Seventh
                          Day, hallelujah, lo,
                          the Lord rested as
                          damn well he should!

Reviewed by La Belle Rouge Poetess Of The Heart
Top shelf poetry with a strong voice. God gets blamed for a lot of things man creates. Well penned and thought provoking.
Reviewed by Odin Roark
If only more thinking such as this would use reason and rational appreciation of history to honestly accept the saga of violence man has always embraced, we just might have a chance of surviving ourselves. But, as long as the definition of war=religions, we will continue our self-destructive bent. You've penned a simple, yet poignant parody too few will read... unfortunately.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull
I like this. Very original. It is very interesting how Christians feel that their Bible speaks truth to them and that God is somehow kind and good, when all people do is bicker and fight about which religion is best. if God created us, he/she? sure created a wild bunch, bent on bloodlust and greed.

Hey ... top-a-the-day to you Bennett. Long time. You've conjured an almost sinister take on Genesis here. Really different. Peace to you ... richard

Thank you for sharing your philosophical perspective on this ageless and universal theme, Bennett. Love, peace, and best wishes to you,
