the mud god is my new god

the mud god is my new god,
because it never expects adoration
never demands virgin crimson
nor a glorious edifice

the mud god is my new god,
because it never clutches at gold
never crusades against the infidel
nor sends souls beneath it

the mud god is my new god
because it only wants rain

It's appropriate that your blogline is "just my two cents" because that's about all that poem is worth.

The mud god sounds like a messy god. Will you be starting the mud religion?
