Oh me, Blasphemous me


They won't listen. Do you know why? Because they have certain fixed notions about the past. Any change would be blasphemy in their eyes, even if it were the truth. They don't want the truth; they want their traditions.
 
Isaac Asimov, Pebble in the Sky


Give me some magic pill, some God
To get away from this maddening world
Let me slip through the cracks
If few of them still exist
Once they catch up with me
I’ll be tried, will be pried
Chained and scrutinized
My friends will watch from afar
Earthly concerns enchains them too
They are wildlings stocked in zoo
Too little, so brittle
What in this cosmos they can do
There’s no pill
Such whispers I hear everyday
There are far too many Gods
For me to pray
I never pray
I’ll rot in seven hells for this
Oh me, blasphemous me
Some might say
But I feel better this way
They never listen
Have ears just for show
Why call?
When I always get to yell at a wall
It’ll crumble in time not before
Methinks my way is right
They think otherwise
For me it’s all hypocrisy
They charge me with heresy
For who is right, who got it all wrong?
Is it you lot?
Or is it me and my blasphemous song?

  1. Please restrain, blasphemy is not liked in any civilized set up -though style and content of poem is praiseworthy . Asimov has a pun in its quoted lines here!

  2. A pill to ignore the maddening world would be better. Getting away would be unwelcome. The maddening world has some mad people who we do love to be with. :) If u find such a pill, do let me know :D

  4. There is a spare style, a rare lightness, a sudden perception,a revelation, a feeling of a moment distilled or crystallized in this poem. Good one!

    "They are wildlings stocked in zoo
    Too little, so brittle"

  7. Everything is fine as long as you respect others' beliefs (and non-beliefs, sorry couldn't find a better word), and don't try to shove your beliefs down the other's throat. Everyone should have the freedom of thought, but not the privilege to rubbish others without limit.

    Cheers
