God is Dead
GOD IS DEAD
But is He really dead?
Or has a caricature - bearded, vengeful, Olympian -
Such a God never was.
God is not in winds of raging words,
Nor in fires of "holy" wars
Nor earthquakes upstart minds make,
But in a still, small voice.
Perhaps it's death by deletion:
A "God of gaps" ferreted out,
A notion made redundant in a world that runs itself?
A cowering God of gaps there never was.
For there is no battle, no Darwin and Goliath clash;
Neither was a death-rattle heard.
"Liberated" minds love to shadow-box
And chase God like a fox with pedant hounds.
Or is it death of fancy that sweeps God away?
Once-loved stories languish.
Play of yesterday and Santa Claus
Today become an old discarded cause.
There's a tale told through time:
Recurring theme involving death, of life laid down in love;
A new unruly life that casts off death.
Such lasting love is God. He's here to stay.
