Gods Retiring


There is a Christian view?
I took mine early, caring for
what hadn’t been.

Who turn
themselves back
to dust.

When Soul Survivor
had its first celestial
applicant.

A surprise
to some there is more
than one.

Without age, how
does this get pushed back in
times of austerity?

When these too are ripe for
fleecing from their funds yet there is no number
to ring relentlessly.

It is only on the third page of reckoning
that Greeks and a former sporting star
are mentioned.

A Real Person walking
amongst Them still had to go
because of pain.

Ray’s immortal
gateway was being
Beloved.

As fickle as any
vacuous celebrity, a comeback
is never out of the question.
