Kit Kelen #377 - I am a terrible tyrant and bully

I am a terrible tyrant and bully

I am thinking out loud
(God knows why)
I am talking to myself again
I am
… that's the main thing to remember
comes in all languages

how long is it since supper now?

do what I say, not what I do
never try this at home

deliver however many warnings you like

there's flood
there's famine
there's fire

you think you can build a tower
cosy up?

I never listen to my own advice
there's only one voice I can hear

I have a waiting room
it's hard to read with the coughing in there

alright, you look back
be a pillar of salt
pillar of pepper
for all I care

you can choose what you like to believe
I love a fatal flaw

I am a terrible bully
make breezes
and petals for roses to show
such sweet perfume
as loves must lure

I like to be a little blinding
and I visit with plagues and with pox

see my clouds
they're like no others
stars to show
how far
I've come

I like a little something
burnt at the stake
like my wrath
medium rare
that's just to let you know
I'm for real
make that gospel

why do I bother?
I could let it all go
wouldn't the deists love that?
they're all iced

yes I am a vengeful fucker
you bet

you think that I'm mad
to write it all down
collecting the curses
to keep in this little box

yes, you in the back
I am talking to you
the one with your family on fire
quit that shrieking

I have beatific moments too
and rapture from rubbing the world
the right way

I'm the truth to set you free

out of my way you mortal
as destined
let's see how you go with that
I'm the long shadow
day and night

get on with your rejoicing
it's tedious but needed
think of me as your CEO

some days I am institutional

big papa Zeus rapes all in his path

you take a dim view?
that's the problem with your kind

I'm who does the judging
and there
and everywhere

have a go at conscientious objecting

try to imagine the dry bones rising
on the last of days
yes, you could think of that as a punch line
but it isn't the best of my jokes

tickets on me?
my silence is bluster

there isn't a pigeon hole that I'll fit

I am a terrible tyrant
I roar
o insolence to question

and when I damn you
I know where to
it's on for young and old
there is no coming back

but I invented the dance
take my steps
like breeze to leaf bear up
there is no detail
below my means
you think of dragonflies
I make each atom-world
in their eyes

when I blow
and your world goes out
blink and it's the same

am I looking?
do I read your mind
I am what you're thinking now

you want to get out of the storm?
well I'm it

I am a dreadful slave driver
quit stalling – get your back into

doubts! will only draw you closer

why is it they all cling to my raft
when blindness would be better?

don't they know that I'm the shark too
and I'm the knife kept out sight

what is the punishment they crave?
No, I have thought a way through that
and I have something better

let me be your briney deep
I am the wings of love
and I am all of the heavens above

I came up in the first lift
you can only imagine the seventh
I go for forever

have you heard the choir up there?
then who do you think is conducting?

who is it dares to do my voice?
I smite
you know I'm bearded for it
and testicles to boot

all that stuff at the back of your head
when you can't get to sleep
yours truly

I sign
I'm the buck stops
yes it's all about me

would you like the calling card?
think twice before you say

I am a terrible tyrant
I roar

let's go out to the desert together
I'll show you mine
and of course it's symbolic
I love an exegete
a holy war when the hunger comes

if somebody's wrong
then it's not me

I am a dreadful bastard you know
just don't ask 'how's your father?'

but I did make the garden

I made you stand upright
call names

I'm a long way back
I'm the one who...
it's easy to point a finger

better to make your hands a prayer
better because I say

I'm dreaming now

you can save yourself
it's never too late
fat lady's still mum

don't come to me
with your casket of foreskin
I've got some commandments for you

can't you lug a few simple tablets
do I have to say everything twice?

all obey my will
it's nicer

I'm God all day long
I'm a terrible bully
I'm best when I'm vengeful and cruel

you will do what I say

how it delights to make music for me

I lie on this couch
sing from the beginning

some of me would like to be women
and some would well, doctor, you know

I take it the simple nod will suffice


there are so many
last out please get the lights
could you?

  1. LOL. Whoah Mumma that is a lot!. I am spoiled for choice on good bits here Kit. "Pillar of pepper for all I care" is a good place to start. Nicely tart I think.
