Na/GloPoWriMo Day 23: In A World Without God

Na/GloPoWriMo Day 23 and the challenge is to write something pertinent to the incorporation of spoken word overheard or part of the fabric of surrounding society.  In that all language more or less falls under these broad categories, I selected a similar but different scattegory… that of a phrase overheard from a mini-series I’m watching on Netflix.

In A World Without God
by Michael Romani

In a world without God
And where the mere mention
Is something that is outlawed
There will be much attention
Paid to things that don't matter
There as we watch our world shatter

In a world without God
And His mention is outlawed
Our world will live in tyranny
The day of His death in infamy
As one by one, we stop and turn
In this final lesson to learn

What we would not do to cheat
Things such as death seems fleet
Fleeter than the slow surrender
That will bleed our souls to render
The juice that overflows at our dying
With sacred mothers sighing

Out their last breathes as we crumble
Falling to our knees as we tumble
No longer able to keep the façade
Realizing we needed this God
And knowing that we have nothing left
As we realize our final cleft

In a world without God
And where the mere mention
Is something that is outlawed
There will be much attention
Paid to things that don't matter
There as we watch our world shatter
