notes on why IANASP is a Godless area after accusations that the editor is a fascist, by Martin Hayes

no

Gods,
you are not allowed in here –
these walls are not to be disfigured
by your muskets and cluster bombs,
and even if you were
that all-seeing judgemental eye of yours
would need to be left at the door,
scooped out of that gun turret
you keep in the center of your head,
and you’d need to wipe those feet of yours too
because the blood on your soles stink,
and while you’re at it
you’ll be asked to give your fingernails a clean
of the ribbons of flesh you have massed,
and you’ll also have to give that mouth a rinse
as we can’t understand you –
those bones and severed heads stuck in the back of your throat
make it impossible to translate what you say
..

what’s that? poor? the poor…?
no? oh, war – I should’ve fucking guessed

..
I tell you what
just don’t bother
get your boots back on
and fuck off back to heaven
we’re trying to get this hell you’ve created
in some kind of
..

 order here.

..

Note from the editor:

After I said that neither I am not a silent poet nor its associated Facebook page would accept work which extolled the virtues of one religion over those of any other, someone (not a member) accused me of being a fascist. Personally, I thought this was rather funny and paid no more attention, but I’m glad Martin was able to find inspiration from it.
