21st Century Gods – a poem

If our beliefs form

The deities of our age

Then our gods are jealous

Gods, much like yours.

*
Gods oft found dead,

Electric demipowers slumped

And limp in forgotten booths

Where once were made calls to relatives.

*

Those figureheads of monetary missions

Linger in crevices we barely consider,

A lack of light breeds them in dark

And makes Mammon hailed by many.

*

Ephemeral communication forms

Are perpetuated by instant gratification,

Likes and dislikes, pictures of newness

Spread about as crops wither and die.

*

Everyone wants to be a snowflake,

To seek the meaning in indigo

Over-saturation of the self lost

Amidst the drive and dream of all.

*

Your god is a jealous god

And makes me no money,

He is poor, inadequate & uncharging

And there goes the electricity.
