Show me your God
who had a son
Tell me about him
who impregnated someone’s wife
I wanna know him
this god with a penis
He, him, his
Tell me all about him
He who saved his people
by killing Egyptian babies
This God of Israel
and his problem with Palestine
This God of love
who kills men
and listens to the lamentations
of their women
The omnibenevolent one
with a lake of burning sulphur
Tell me about your God
Teach me how to love him.
