Age Group: Adult

If it's my tale then,
Gather around you fools, and you downtrodden

Gather round, hear a tale
of a lost soul
a soul who gave up all
seemingly received nothing in return
except the ashes of his dead
and hollow laughter of the damned.

come and listen to him,
he who sold his soul
for Naught
and gained twice Naught in return
Naught was supper
Naught was his bed
Naught was his share in the Grand play
of everything that in all have played their parts.

His laughter hollow
his spirit broken
yet he fights on
Look, brethren and sisters in folly
he fights Naught
the fight is all he has to him.

As Naught is his
nothing more than Naught
for the fool
he rages against all
proving to be worthy of more
than Naught.

Come and laugh
jeer at him who
at everything and nothing all at once

His story has no beginning
and no end
No middle
no plot
a story of nothing
a silent raging vigil
For nothing

A story for No one and
Modern day Judas
who betrays nothing
but himself
faith in all
but himself
Unbelief that screams for

Some kind of glory
is his
unbelief only
none other
See the fool
Gained something from

As Naught was
His portion doubly so
Naught he has fashioned
Into a weapon of power
No one else can wield
all shall covet in time

See the power gained
he shall remain standing when
all others fall
unique is he
In his power
Power from nothing more than
only for his claiming

Condemn him at your own
He will return from
His raging
Control only infinite
for so long
His raging vigil
Shall burn
all where they stand
As apparitions that have
too long
destruction will only be
A thought away

Taunt Him
at your own hazard
You have given
To Him
shall be your retribution

from His anger
And your folly

Author's Notes: This one I wrote when I finally gave up on the xtian god, no hatred, just plain gave up. I felt that it was appropriate at the time, and I still do. No threats either, although some of the lines within do contain them, none are intended, all are within, not without. It was the feelings of what my soul had had enough of. Nothing more, nothing less........
Blessed Be!
