Mea Culpa

If your intent was or was not contempt, I apologize. However, you obviously have a lot of knowledge and access to better satire... in my opinion.

JUST READ YOUR LONGER. AGAIN, MY MISTAKE.

Since when does a poem need meaning to be enjoyed?! Can not the simple play of words be poetic enough?!
Your judgement that I/it shows contempt is decidedly misplaced.

The fact you find something smug because it is not to your taste is rather baffling. Amazing how something so gentle can draw out people's prejudices!

Lighten up, mate - life's too short!

A Short Retort

Thought this place was for those trying to create
Even if the poems can't always be great
Why send nonsensical poems from long before
Intending contempt while smugly obscure
There's better ways to let one know you're kind
Next time, tell us what's really on your mind
Share with us how to be a better bard
Not just references from a house of lard.

apart from fatrasies

A large red herring
Had besieged Gisors
On both sides
And two dead men
Came with great difficulty
Carrying a door
Without an old hunchback
Who went around crying: 'A! outside'
The cry of a dead quail
Would have taken them with great difficulty
Underneath a felt hat.

The Odds

Clergy of safe sects say they know God
Question their spoils, they're hot with the rod
Return their bling with a knowing nod
Passively aggressive, evenly odd.

Did Jesus' sermon on a mount do it for you
Was Buddha enlightened in sight of Kathmandu
Did Mohammed move mountains as his core ran through
Was every mountain climbed by just a few?

Reaching the summit is just a peek at God
Don't know how it started nor what's up under sod
Yet the pious, sell fright to us, pushin' their prod
Not even passive, aggressively odd.

Dare I say, before you book me for Hell
Stop, drop, and think of those that might have fell
When an inquisitor tried to compel
A recant in favor of their seer's spell.

Advice is plentiful in search of God
Some focus on the profit from the tripod
Picture the world sans the Messiah squad
Aggressive gets passive even to the odd.

If you're looking for God, try deep inside
Where the worlds of light and dark collide
You, and you alone, must one day decide
Are you coming along on a stellar ride?
