The Beginning of Time

Current Music: Buckley - The Forbidden City
The Beginning of Time was wrought with wonder
Massive skies eclipsed with stars;
Lighting, rain, wind and thunder
On clear nights you could see to Mars

Sunlight bore labor's fruit seasonally
Darkness masked predatory rape
Moon not yet tied to tides boundless synergy
Magical, mystical, mythical gape

An inflamed deity's recompense unleashes mass destruction
On a nearly-global scale
Flood, tsunami, earthquake, volcanic eruption
Inalienable proofs solidify belief's scale
Societies too distant to collaborate together
Similar conclusions nonetheless draw
Powerful but jealous unseen beings test us
Some seek pleasure and adulation amongst men
Those who seek favor fabricate ways to accrue it
Power is given to the leader of them
Rate of growth, expansionism - kingdoms rise and fall
Tales from foreign lands; beauty, death & lore
A mix of people interact anthropologically, economically
And religiously, subsets of mankind soon abhor

Enlightened multiculturists embrace other's views
Religion is the worlds most singularly powerful sword
Not a drop of truth in any of it
Yet he who wields it controls entire worlds

Denominational diversity manifests the Angel of Death
For your fractured view of tolerance is lip-service to the Lord
Justification of carnal desires impossibly suppressed
Unbridled freedom from sin of your own creation shall be your just reward

Don't preach to me about heaven
Don't preach to me about hell
Your proof of his existence
Are the very ones I use to dispel

[Allen:] "No, I'm not going to join a cult!"
[Sandler:] "I can't believe you're pulling this shit on me after Monday night --"
[Allen:] "What?
[Sandler:] "-- I wanted to watch Monday Night Football
And you wanted to watch that other show and we watched your show --
I did that for you!"
[Allen:] "Yeah, well, you kept flippin' back to the game."
Whadda you gotta do that's so fucking importnat you can't join the religious cult with me?"
[Allen:] "Well, I was gonna go sunbathing."
[Sandler:] "Oh, boy, no no, I don't think you should do that.
Because this guy, Russell -- he's the leader-guy of the cult --"
[Allen:] "-- yeah --"
[Sandler:] "-- he was rambling on during one of the speeches
About the sun being bad, like the beast can't come out
Because the sun's too bright and the sun hurts his eyes or something --
You show up all sunburned and that guy's gonna get pissed at you and me!"

I'm not worried about pissing off the leader-guy.

I always love your poetry. I couldn't help but think of this song afterward

In the beginning
Back in nineteen fifty-five
Man didn't know about a rock 'n' roll show
And all that jive
The white man had the smoltz
The black man had the blues
No one knew what they was gonna do
But Tchaikovsky had the news
He said -
"Let there be light", and there was light
"Let there be sound," and there was sound
"Let there be drums," and there was drums
"Let there be guitar," and there was guitar
"Let there be rock"
And it came to pass
That rock 'n' roll was born
All across the land every rockin' band
Was blowing up a storm
The guitarman got famous
The businessman got rich
And in every bar there was a super star
With a seven year itch
There were fifteen million fingers
Learning how to play
And you could hear the fingers picking
And this is what they had to say
"Let there be light"
"Let there be rock"
One night in a club called 'The Shaking Hand'
There was a ninety-two decibel rocking band
The music was good and the music was loud
And the singer turned and he said to the crowd -
"Let there be rock"

In The Beginning
Good Always Overpowered The Evils
Of All The Man's Sins....
But In Time
The Nation Grew Weak
And Our Cities Fell To Slums
While Evil Stood Strong....
In The Stusts Of Hell
Lurked The Blackest Of Hates
For He Whom They Feared
Awaited Them....
Now Many Many Lifetimes Later
Lay Destroyed, Beaten, Beaten Down
Only The Corpses Of Rebels
Ashes Of Dreams
And Blood-Stained Streets...
It Has Been Written
"Those Who Have The Youth
Have The Future"
Som Come Now, Children Of The Beast
Be Strong
And Shout At The Devil
