Judas Was a Fall Guy

Posted: May 30, 2018 in Uncategorized

I no longer think I’m a good person
I’ve caused no real harm
but nor have I done any lasting good.

There’s nothing you could point to
nothing wrong that I don’t already know
I have analyzed myself exhaustively.

Self-awareness by way of self-involvement
the narcissists path to mindfulness
Jesus was a good guy Judas was a fall guy.

Mohammed ascended into malicious myth
Yahweh went thataway
Buddha said nothing.

I am a monkey man jabbering to myself
in the end at least I was relatively harmless
it could have been so much worse.

    You are much better than that, so I beg to differ.

      Thank you, that’s very sweet, but this is not necessarily autobiographical. Poets (if that’s what I am here) sometimes try to give voice to the human condition in a more personal way as a technique to try and make the poem more immediate..sort of like Sympathy for the Devil. So the poetic “I” is not always me. On the other hand, sometimes “I” does in fact mean me. Isn’t poetry fun! Thanks for commenting.
