Today’s word is “heresy, ” a belief or opinion contrary to orthodox religious (especially Christian) doctrine.


A Heretic’s Prayer ©

Imagine having your own village ghost
Happily haunting your guest room
Joining you for a bit of wine and pot roast
But will you be safe on this night of doom

Imagine having ghouls rise from the grave
Chasing the unlucky ones until they scream
Beasties howling from a nearby cave
Joining their forces , they make a good team

Imagine hearing things go bump in the night
When you would rather be sleeping
Everyone knows Hallow’s eve is a demons delight
Come All Saints Day, will you be safe in Gods keeping

Fandango, thanks for the prompt, another great moment for poetic exposure.

Burning candles under the full moon praying to my Goddess Morrighan, she’s the Celtic Warrior Goddess I know counts as heresy by some religious zealots but then seeing some of the people who claim to be devout Christians while supporting the lunatic in office makes me want to avoid all contact. I’m happy to be heretic, definitely contrary.

And better yet, Leave it to Nine Inch Nails to have a song with the title Heresy. How cool is that?

[Verse 1]

He sewed His eyes shut because he is afraid to see

He tries to tell me what I put inside of me

He’s got the answers to ease my curiosity

He dreamed a god up and called it Christianity

[Chorus 1] God is dead and no one cares

If there is a hell, I’ll see you there

[Verse 2]

He flexed His muscles to keep his flock of sheep in line

He made a virus that would kill off all the swine

His perfect kingdom of killing, suffering, and pain

Demands devotion, atrocities done in His name

[Chorus 2] God is dead and no one cares

If there is a hell, I’ll see you there

Your god is dead and no one cares

If there is a hell, I’ll see you there

[Chorus 3]

God is dead and no one cares

If there is a hell, I’ll see you there

(Your god is dead!)

God is dead (And no one cares!)

And no one cares (Drowning in his own hypocrisy!)

If there is a hell

(Burning with your god in humility!)

I’ll see you there

(Will you die for this?!)
