Antichrist Superstar

Antichrist Superstar

Turn not the other cheek

For the infidel that smites you

By fire by blood

He shall die

The weapons of this warfare

Are not carnal

But mighty in pulling down

Strong holds

 

Give not unto Caesar

What is Caesar’s

The Lord of Host

Has decreed it

Summon Brutus to the synagogue

And anoint him

The next Prefect of Rome

Even though his dagger

Drips still

With the blood of Caesar

 

Give not a tenth measure

Of your harvest

To the house of Levites

The Lord of Host

Is no tiller of the earth

Sow a seed with the red beast

From the house of Ferrari

And see your fortune

Multiply before the next moon

 

Suffer not the children

To come

To the House of the Lord

If an infant cries

In the dead of night

Be fooled not

It is but a witch

Smite it with your rod

And sting its cheeks

With your palm

Then shall it know

To whom

it speaks blasphemy

 

Thou shall have

No other God

Except the man of God

And his spouse

And their spawn

Judge him not

That you may not be judged

Touch him not

And do him no harm

But I bid you

Smite the heathens

Who dare question his flaws

 

Verily verily I say unto you

Were he to be alive today

The wood-mender Nazarene

Would be the unbeliever

In a faith he authored.

(Inspired by the song “Antichrist Superstar” by Marilyn Manson)

  1. Trying to play devil’s advocate abi?

    Well. To each his own. Strictly as a poem, I honestly did not enjoy this much. Felt as though you had a really powerful idea, but you didn’t play it well enough.

    Tried listening to Marilyn Manson once. That was enough.

    Okay.

  2. “Give not unto Caesar

    What is Caesar’s

    The Lord of Host
