C E Hitchens

I live with no religion,
I live without your god,
because they screwed it up –
one hell of a lot:

Mismanaged and misplanned,
offering little in good faith,
instead they demand
a foul life be your grace.

Child sacrifice and abuse,
put upon one’s only son,
in the name of god’s love,
for the good of everyone?

Let us raise a faith,
in our own kind hearts,
and leave it to religion
to blow itself apart.
