UNPARDONABLE SIN {1 of 9} -- Op-Ed Verse (NOT!) by BOKE

{1_01} THEN GOD SAID: "Are you sure a vote for Bush

{1_02} is sin sufficient to condemn to hell

{1_03} the Christian Right? Or should I spank your tush

{1_04} for bending Bible verses? Yes, Boke, tell ...

 
{1_05} ... Me how a stupid vote can cost so much.

{1_06} Eternity is quite a long long time

{1_07} to punish ignorance. Perhaps retouch

{1_08} your last week's sonnets -- lighten up the crime.

 
{1_09} "NO, LORD, I don't rewrite when I'm correct.

{1_10} I'll prove to even You by your own words

{1_11} (as passed through Jesus) -- show how they connect

{1_12} to guarantee the Dubya-voting herds ...

 
{1_13} ... must spend forever locked in hell because

{1_14} they broke that unforgivable of laws:

UNPARDONABLE SIN {2 of 9} -- Op-Ed Verse (NOT!) by BOKE

{2_01} iBLASPHEME THE HOLY SPIRIT you'll undo

{2_02} Christ's blood's protection, THUS condemn your soul.

{2_03} (See Matthew 20: 31 through 2.)

{2_04} And do not think close reading of some poll ...

 
{2_05} ... will prove you're safe because you're not alone."

{2_06} GOD INTERRUPTS TO ASK: "How do you get

{2_07} from A to B? Are you not Boke, but Joan

{2_08} of Arc -- whose angel-whisperings gazette ...

 
{2_09} ... informs you of a path most folks can't see?"

{2_10} He smiles, God knows I know the way to trace

{2_11} from Dubya votes to hell omnisciently.

{2_12} "DEAR LORD, if you'll be still I'll make my case."

 
{2_13} With one arched eyebrow, God nods to proceed

{2_14} with my oration which so few will heed.

UNPARDONABLE SIN {3 of 9} -- Op-Ed Verse (NOT!) by BOKE

{3_01} THE CORNERSTONE I lay is anchored thus:

{3_02} THE SIN that's UNFORGIVABLE is more

{3_03} than saying "Holy Spirit" when you cuss.

{3_04} THAT SIN is when you point at heaven's door ...

 
{3_05} ... attributing the Devil's dirty work

{3_06} to God's most Holy Spirit. Yes, for that

{3_07} your name will be crossed out, replaced by "Jerk" --

{3_08} your halo changed to two-horned party hat ...

 
{3_09} ... for Satan's neverending brimstone bash.

{3_10} God nods again, acknowledging "That's right."

{3_11} To bridge from THERE to DUBYA may seem rash,

{3_12} but not so much once you have seen the light.

 
{3_13} This light will show a Dubya vote's THAT sin

{3_14} so clearly even God will shout AMEN!

UNPARDONABLE SIN {4 of 9} -- Op-Ed Verse (NOT!) by BOKE

{4_01} LET'S TURN to when Christ's ministry begins.

{4_02} In Matthew chapter 3, in verse 16

{4_03} the Holy Spirit (as a dove) descends.

{4_04} In John 1:33 abides unseen.

 
{4_05} From then on it empowers each Christ sign:

{4_06} His miracles and sermons -- all his words.

{4_07} And so in Matthew 5 verse 39

{4_08} "RESIST NOT EVIL" is not for the birds ...

 
{4_09} ... but a commandment from the Holy Ghost.

{4_10} The same goes for Christ's "TURN THE OTHER CHEEK"

{4_11} and "LOVE YOUR ENEMY." And you'll be toast

{4_12} to claim Christ as your Savior and then speak ...

 
{4_13} ... of WAR as justified to save our skin.

{4_14} SUCH BLASPHEMY is BULLSHIT, HELL-BOUND SIN.

UNPARDONABLE SIN {5 of 9} -- Op-Ed Verse (NOT!) by BOKE

{5_01} A CHRISTIAN WHO EMPOWERS SATAN'S PLAN

{5_02} BY VOTING FOR SUCH BLASPHEMY strips off

{5_03} the Blood of Christ to gain a hell-fire tan.

{5_04} ALTHOUGH it's tempting, pause before you scoff.

 
{5_05} JUST WHERE does Christ say "Kill so you won't die?"

{5_06} What did Christ say of those who love this life?

{5_07} Have you forgotten? CHRISTIANS, I ask why

{5_08} you're terrified of death? Your church the wife ...

 
{5_09} ... of Christ, but sleeps around with Satan's men

{5_10} who run THE WORLD. Their power turn you on?

{5_11} Participating proudly in their sin.

{5_12} Their deadly tit-for-tat. Christ's cross you've sawn ...

 
{5_13} ... for kindlin' to stoke high the fires of hell

{5_14} where you'll be going. HOW D'YOU LIKE THE SMELL?

UNPARDONABLE SIN {6 of 9} -- Op-Ed Verse (NOT!) by BOKE

{6_01} THE LORD BREATHES DEEPLY, turns not up his nose

{6_02} (except at that old syntax I've slipped by).

{6_03} "It's not the best you've done -- won't curl the toes

{6_04} of Southern Baptists. Seems they're bound to fry.

 
{6_05} Despite their Bible thumping, they can't read,

{6_06} apparently, OR ELSE they'd change their tune...

{6_07} And their soiled underwear -- looks like they've peed

{6_08} their pants and panties. Crazy as a loon ...

 
{6_09} ... Afraid of death, when Christ had set them free.

{6_10} Believe in bombs, not Jesus' precious blood.

{6_11} They're bound to KILL NOT LOVE their enemy.

{6_12} You vote for bullets -- but for Christ, a dud."

 
{6_13} I SAY: "That line's not perfect, but it's best."

{6_14} (My lines scan better, but God's have more zest.) {smile}

UNPARDONABLE SIN {7 of 9} -- Op-Ed Verse (NOT!) by BOKE

{7_01} "I'm sorry for the Baptists, God. Perhaps

{7_02} You'll find it in Your heart to overlook

{7_03} those Bible verses sitting in their laps

{7_04} but not their hearts. Must You go by the book?

 
{7_05} AND GOD SAID: I'll be happy to, if they

{7_06} forgave their fellow man, instead of hate

{7_07} those diff'rently inspired. IT'S NOT OK

{7_08} to shout my name in prayer, but never wait ...

 
{7_09} ... on God's direction, only worldly sense:

{7_10} Kill or be killed. They proudly ruin My name --

{7_11} Blaspheme the Holy Spirit, spit and rinse

{7_12} the Blood of Christ away. How they defame ...

 
{7_13} ... all that I value. They will have to burn.

{7_14} UNLESS they get a clue -- from Dubya turn.

UNPARDONABLE SIN {8 of 9} -- Op-Ed Verse (NOT!) by BOKE

{8_01} "DEAR LORD, let's make this clear enough to save

{8_02} the Dubya-voting Baptists from hell fire.

{8_03} IF THEY will change their ways, if they will cave

{8_04} in to my argument, might all my dire ...

 
{8_05} ... predictions of their torment will go poof?

{8_06} AND GOD SAYS: "Just like Jonah, you'll abort

{8_07} their punishment. AS LONG AS they don't goof-

{8_08} up on election day -- If they can sort ...

 
{8_09} ... out how to vote the way God would prefer.

{8_10} WHICH MEANS: Don't vote for Dubya. (Must be clear

{8_11} so they won't burn in hell, but rather purr

{8_12} like happy cats in heaven -- with no fear.)

 
{8_13} THEN GOD SAYS: "Boke, I think that's long enough.

{8_14} If they'll take hell for Bush, they're mighty tough."

UNPARDONABLE SIN {9 of 9} -- Op-Ed Verse (NOT!) by BOKE

{9_01} IN PARIS, pen down, I glance toward the bed

{9_02} where she is sleeping softly as the dawn

{9_03} is easing through the window... All I've said

{9_04} spilled out in playful lines more lightly drawn ...

 
{9_05} ... than fire-and-brimstone sermons tend to go.

{9_06} I close the bible, smiling at the thought

{9_07} of where my mind's returning. No more foe

{9_08} to battle -- no more demons to be fought ...

 
{9_09} ... Just abstract notions of morality.

{9_10} The sexual fixations we attach

{9_11} to God -- well-documented actu'lly

{9_12} in this book on the desk. A FRAME MISMATCH?

 
{9_13} A bible in the bedroom when she wakes.

{9_14} This moment in eternity. The stakes.

BABELFISH HAIKU REVIEW

Ce n'est pas une plaisanterie --

si vous croyez la bible,

de même que les baptistes.


LIMERICK REFRAME (NOT!)

I asked the cow why is
           she still here?

Sweet Cow just smiles,
        acts like she can't hear ...

... Bad Boke spouting rhyme --

it's heard all the time ...

when dairy hands drink
       way too much beer. {smile}
