Woe are the sins of the vulnerable and secular man--wish we could all be Godly instead of just reaching for the Holy Grail and God's own grace. Your poem strikes a strong message.

This is an excellent senryu, CJ! Isn't writing fantastic...a release of frustration!

Very powerful, CJ.

Self-appointed “anythings” always make me rather suspicious… and cautious. ;0)
This is a great first “senryu”, dear CJ. Unlike “haiku”, which must indeed be about nature, “senryu”, using the same structure and syllabic count, was classically used with a humorous, rather satirical intention. Here, you used it as a critique of one of the “snakiest” types of personality there can be – the hypocrite - and you did it brilliantly!

Great job CJ you've said much in few words, just as it should be with Senryu...you've given one a prompt to self examine....enjoyed this. I also admire you for trying a new style...I've got something on my mind and heart to try soon...great job CJ!!!

Hey CJ, that's good. Vulgarity is also not a Godly trait. Great Senryu! Shocks the senses, I think. :)

God Bless

CJ, This is one of the better examples of using brevity to speak volumes. It required talent and bravery to post this excellent reminder to all of us to be what you are in voice and spirit and nothing else. Thank you

Yes!There's one or two of them around. Just know that you see them as they are and forgive them. They'll hate that.
Great Senryn.

Hi CJ,

This seems to be more of a senryu, since a haiku is generally about nature...Nevertheless, you've nailed the syllabic count--with a stinging line 1. Nice work.
