Bob and God

bygreenmountaineer©

Why is life so lousy, God?
You have rheumatoid arthritis, Bob.

Life's full of pain and suffering, Lord.

And why is there war, thieving, and shame?
You don't know why? You're kidding me, right?

Prayer to you is just wasting my time.

You're just a figment inside my mind.
Smart men and women say the same thing.

There's so much suffering, turmoil, and pain.
Goddam it, Bob! Take aspirin!

Moody in a way. Simple but subtle.

The poem shows the difference between a narrator (lyrical subject) and the poem itself. The issue of faith is treated in an interesting way too. Nothing is clear here. Only the bitching attitude, mostmore...
