The Hitchens Post

Verses inspired by Gawker's brilliant Wonka-referencing tag for posts on atheism, "Everlasting Godstoppers," and Hitch's latest runaway bestseller:
Come and think, have a drink
In a world of pure rationalization
It's not odd, there's no God,
But there's Scotch enough for a small nation

Just for spite, trash the Right,
And their blind insistence on Creation
Warn the world, as we're whirled,
Into spheres of Islamification

You will never view Paradise
It's a snare and a delusion
Only adding to confusion
Want to change the world? God's an illusion.

God's not great, so berate
Both fanatics and moderate believers
We've no use for a truce
Just rhetorical checkmate.

If you want to view Paradise
There is nothing like polemic
No matter how you pray or hymn it
Our derision... is systemic...
Damn, if I could only figure out a way to turn a minor talent for doggerel into a paying gig.
