#785 In the beginning was a word 7-22-18

Was the first

grunt

a pronoun:

“I-”
“You-”
“Us-”
“Them-”
?

or was it

a verb:

“sit.”
“rest.”
“speak.”
“um….fuck?”
(hope has always sprung eternal in the hearts of man 🙂
?

Then,
from that first word,

who aped the first story?
Who sang the first poem?

Who smirked the first lie?
Who first skewed fact into fiction?

Who first organized an alliance
dedicated to the eradication
of even the memory of

their word,

in order to advance
the intrinsic value and Divinely Revealed,
dominating superiority of

OUR WORD!

Who first burned a book?
Who ignited the second blaze?

When did it all first start
to all go
all
wrong?

Who will be the last to gather
the last clan
around the last camp fire
to lament the looming
doom?

Who will be the last

one?

What will be
the last

word

of the last

one?

Will it be a pronoun?
“Them”
“Us”
“You”
“I”.

Or will it be a verb?
“Sit”
“Rest”
“Speak”

“FUCK!!”
