    The religious people put a saddle on God
    A bit, bridle, reins and spurs
    Kicked His side to shuttle to and fro
    On the track of human certitude
    He roared and stomped a quake into the Earth
    Many people died
    They said "As a horse you are a failure
    Perhaps you don't exist"

    The religious people urge me to get on the track
    Lest I fall prey to dangerous freedoms
    Slipping off the narrow spine of their decrepit horse
    I grasp at the reins
    I yearn for a rule
    I've committed a great sin
    What can I buy?
    I hurry to scurry
    But I do not find Him

    Until I am still with nothing that I can do
    And not a fig leaf to my name
    Only a core of hot anger and cold knowledge
    Pain clouds raining in between
    He, untamed and unfettered Touches me
    He goes where religion's illicit morality cannot
    I rise up on His wings
    In the wind His free mane
    Whips away my tears one by one

    aw Rich! Thanks man. I was kind of buried up under there quickly. Wondered if anybody saw this drop. It's my policy here to give two for one. Before I post one poem I reply to two.
