Read Poem: The God Vendor, by Fernando Vasconcelos

Lo and behold,

Your ship has sailed.

And all your hopes and dreams have bailed.

But fret not, child.

Put your heart at rest.

And gaze upon the Word made flesh…

..’s man on the ground.

In God you trust and I’m in on the plan.

I am His red right hand man.

The bringer of better news,

I give you credit for your dues.

Souls on loan.

Afterlives on lease.

The economics of belief.

Forgiveness granted,

For a fee.

Conditions cushy as can be.

I’ll write your book and burn your witches.

Choose the faithful from the wretches.

All you have to do is kneel.

It’s salvation at a steal.

In the beginning there was the word.

It said: take the money and run.

I got God and you want it.

Get some.
