Take a good look

Take a good look at Christianity
with open mind and feelings:
welcome to heresy!
honesty's apostacy condemnation's rife
prosperity and adversity rule belief
for ideals languish by wayside
with begging bowl
or flourish flamboyant sword of ultimate conviction
that sacrifices needs to intent

if God is God -- just supposin' --
why would that fantastic paronym
care about our booby enterprise?
what have we to offer?
bended knee and reneged promises?
we are on our own
castaways inhabiting desert island
under hazard of self-extirpation
led astray by pernicious habits
as if on lazy susan
that inevitably reprises cycle
to defeat any interal design or purpose
that by grace or providence could emerge
