There once was a God who learned to hate,
He grew tired of benevolence,
And perhaps of divinity too,
His creations only brought disappointment,

Beasts of fang and scale grew tiresome,
Achieving nothing but a tedious cycle of predator and prey,
His creations of the waves too,
Fins and scales offer no diversion,

He looks to the skies,
And hates the souls flying overhead,
Cursing at his avian creations,
Each wing-beat an assumed insult to his godhood,

Most of all he loathes those of his image,
Dominating a world he made,
Squabbling over salt and dirt,
Boring, boring and boring,

A bored God is a dangerous God,
A dissatisfied one even more so,
What if he decided to inject some amusement?
A cataclysm there,
A flood here,
Or a plague over there,
Something a hateful God could unleash upon his subjects of ire,

What if this God decided to throw his toys away,
And started anew?

    Good question. What if.

    Tricky, humanity has created a fearful deity to subjugate and disempower itself…

  3. Depending on your belief system, God indeed did throw away his toys and wash the world clean… Loved this piece, very good writing!

  6. We had a debate sometime back in college – “What if God is a social construct”

  7. Sometimes I write a poem with hopes that its going to be great but then, when I read it the next day, I tear it up.

    The God we have made is not bored he is very much in the game, changing the rules as and when he pleases like a spoilt child

    Hateful God

  10. “What if this God decided to throw his toys away, / And started anew?”
    ~ No what if. We’re already doing a great job of destroying everything in our wake.

    Just a note… “For God so loved the world (that means you) that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Without Him we are all perishing.
