NIETZCHE SAID IT

by Curt Stubbs

God is dead
He died intestate
leaving no will, living
or otherwise.
His only son died
two thousand years ago
so his estate went to the state,
including his great powers.

God is dead
and Pat Robertson and the Pope
are fighting over the corpse
each swearing to God and country
that they knew Him best.
The corpse has begun to rot
and is drawing flies and other claimants
to his legacy.

God is dead
and with him died civility
and tolerance (sometimes called love);
and with him died
hope and optimism to be replaced
by greed and despair.
