GOD WARS AND DOCU-DRAMAS – A poem and philosophical inquiry.

 The Gods always seem to be at war with each other.

            I see it on TV.

A friend of mine has it on their smart phone as an app.

People walk around    or sit all day

staring at their    mini-screens    or       big screens

watching     the Gods at war.

Some of them     just enjoy    the Gods at war.

Others    type   as fast    as their thumbs   and fingers    can move

either        helping the Gods at war keep fighting

or    they are busy typing away

thinking    they can get    the Gods at war   to stop    fighting . . .

maybe they can.

But the real war,       well   the  real war

is convincing

all    of those people

with   or without      big screens           and     mini screens

that the   Gods at war    are    not worth              watching.

And the    Gods at war   are not     worth      fighting for.

The Gods     have fought    before.

And only     men      suffered.

The Gods      do not    suffer.

They   are   Gods.

Only men   suffer.

Women suffer     even more than    men.

Are the Gods    only at war                   for us

like the Greeks             said they were?

Trying to save us

from themselves

or from other Gods           not quite  so    benevolent?

Only the Gods    would know     the answer.

They     are    Gods.

We are     only     men and    women.

Have we ever asked      the Gods

why

they were       at war???

Would they even want us   to know

how imperfect     their world    was?

After   all   a Universe   of Gods    where they   had  to    fight     each other?

You would think   as Gods

since they already      knew  everything

they would be at  peace.

We are    the Gods   to ants     and    roaches.

We watch them    or

we kill them.

Do      we    ever    try   to   help    them?

They only like to    watch us    fight.

It’s the only way     they know   they are safe.

As long as we’re not fighting

hungry          over them.

Why are the Gods at war?
