Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

And Forgive Me My Poetry

skull roses lou patrick mackayJesus made the flowers,
And he made the C4, too.
Jesus made the Grateful Dead,
Then He made Motley Crüe.

Christ, the Risen, made the sea,
And rocky, killing shores.
Then he filled the sky with planes,
With unlocked cockpit doors.

Jesus made the sunset red,
And melanoma brown.
Jesus made the flying fish,
Then children he let drown.

Christ, the Savior, gave us sleep,
And frantic nightmare’d night.
Filled our ears with laughing songs,
And filled our fists with fight.

Jesus made the flowers,
And the overturned school bus.
Jesus made the whole damn world,
And Jesus, he made us.


  1. Is this poem theologically sound? I know there was no C4 before Jesus, but weren’t there flowers?
