A poem constructed out of quotes from Nietzsche’s The Antichrist and true statements about science or etymology. Nietzsche quotes in BLOCK CAPS!
THE EQUALITY OF SOULS BEFORE GOD – THIS FRAUD
is TNT absorbed
into a stabilising framework to
prevent the inconvenient ignition that will
one day rip open those closed carbon rings
using the oxygen it already contains
to free it all into gases
exploding out, in search of
GOD ON THE CROSS –
IS MAN ALWAYS TO MISS THE FRIGHTFUL
INNER SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS SIGN?
EVERYTHING THAT SUFFERS,
EVERYTHING THAT HANGS ON THE CROSS, IS DIVINE.
WE ALL HANG
under gravitational forces,
bone resting on bone,
compressing our spine
but Einstein’s equivalence principle
says only the curve of the earth
marks the difference between weight and everyone
uniformly accelerating up, towards
THE CHRISTIAN CONCEPT OF A GOD
– GOD AS THE PATRON OF THE SICK
GOD AS THE SPINNER OF COBWEBS,
GOD AS A SPIRIT
IS ONE OF THE MOST CORRUPT CONCEPTS
THAT HAS EVEN BEEN SET UP
Your nuclear fusion reactor
with a pinhead of fuel held
in place with spider’s silk.
It will remain strong yet flexible
at temperatures where air will freeze to rock,
Holding stead that ball of all potential
to await the incomparable brightness of
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BELONGS TO CHILDREN.
IT IS A SORT OF RECRUDESCENT CHILDISHNESS OF THE SPIRIT.
IT DOES NOT REALISE HOW IT WILL ONE DAY SET MAN AGAINST
man, from old English, meaning person, human being.
Sense of ‘adult male’ emerged around 1000 years after Christ
SPEAKS ONLY OF INNER THINGS
– IN HIS SIGHT, THE WHOLE OF REALITY HAS SIGNIFICANCE
ONLY AS SIGN, AS ALLEGORY
THE EQUALITY OF SOULS BEFORE GOD –
THIS IS cosmic expansion means
our universe is exploding.
