God, Devil, Man, Woman And Child: 5 Poems
Author: Colin Stewart

vinebar

He came out of heavenly retirement to write a blog.
The wheel of life was missing its cog.
Humanity had generated an error log
in this eternal conflict of dog eat dog!

---

You try and look away but to no avail.
Human decency is destined to fail
and you're a slave to the entrapment of this sordid tale
with the perils of answering the devil's e-mail!

---

Women were excluded from discussions and that's a clue.
Tradition offered the disadvantages of nothing new
as the lessons of history would never cease.
Men had failed again to negotiate peace!

---

Variations of pigments flood her brain.
This impetus behind fashion is a familiar refrain
but his myopic thinking just drives her insane.
Color coordination is a woman's domain!

---

Their resistance to authority offers a clue.
The joke I'm afraid lies squarely on you
as they'll let you clean up Number 2.
Anarchistic babies are a motley crew!

This is powerful!

This poem reminds me of what Monica said in an episode of "Touched By An Angel" about how the Internet has "good and evil competing for your mind." This poem breaks my heart.
