Science v Religion

Science versus Religion

is a war

that neither can win

still we draw battle lines

though we’re all fighting on the same side

when humanity is at stake

when no religious book disputes

the existence of intelligent design

and no textbook fights against

1 plus 1 equaling 2

meaning each 1 of us is


Shadows Drowned By Night

“Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings — always darker, emptier and simpler.”
-Friedrich Nietzsche

Somewhere on the slippery slopes of consciousness and sleep

slithers thoughts that never shed their skin

never seen

never seeped in


in the darkness of fears

layers of lairs of

snakes’ nests upon snakes’ nests

an orgy of a serpent’s imagination

as a hawk’s shadow circles

the skampering mouse

and even the simplest of inspirations

such as hunger

can swoop down from the sky

and gobble us up

before we can even

wonder why.
