Spiritual Autopsy

Spiritual Autopsy

A Poem by Rob Santana
"

G.O.O.D. V.S. E.V.I.L. (acrostic write #1) possible lyrics

"

Gathering  together  the  chosen  ones

Organizing  the  two  faced  holy  nuns

Oracles  regurgitating  obscene  incantations

Death  with  it's  final  cancellation

 

Venomous  words  invade  my  subconscious

Salvation, worship, obey or die

 

Erupting  with  dire  aggression eyes  filled  with  fire

Violent  images  received  through  voodoo  voyages

Insane  idolaters  performing  a  spiritual  autopsy

Lucifer  pens  my  obituary….”He was spiritually weak”

I like the concept of a spiritual autopsy , that is a very intriguing. This was neat to read. I like how you spelled out good vs evil and then wrote the poem to each word. Your dark poetry is always delightfully and you make some interesting lines. Your words are used very well too.

Well done.

Acrostic poems are fun to do, it pushes you to work that much harder
Good vs. evil, me against both. Fascinating. I could go off on a tangent but I'll refrain until you know me a little better (wait till you meet the dork side) I think the part that resonated with me was "venomous words invade my subconsious, salvation, worship obey or die.
You seem adept at finding just the right words with no wasted fluff. When I'm not driving nails into the skulls of my victims - I'm sprinkling bits of wispy fluff. Its sad really.

Well I did put "chosen ones, holy nuns and oracles?" Those are kinda good....
Woah. That last line was just... wow. This is great. I agree with whoever else said they didn't like acrostics. They tend to be a little bit shallow, typically. However, this is really brilliantly written. I don't think it's even an acrostic. It's like... the Lord of All Acrosticness.

Okay, I'm too tired for this. Just don't think about it and pretend I made sense.

Great work, honestly. It's quite thought-provoking and tends to reflect what we all (at least I) feel like at times.

You did actually -.- Not cool, have fun! Enjoy!
There's nothing wrong with acrostics, but I've personally always felt that they were just such a ham-handed way of getting a point across that I've always disliked them. However, I really like what you've done with this. The last line particularly is notable for the distinct image it conjures up. The tone is well-done and you've definitely made your point. Good work.

Most welcome. :)
Reading this acrostic, brought back my memories with religious people, who condemned me, for being a transsexual and a lesbian, at the same time. As for your question, you are neither, just a human being trying to live and hopefully thrive.
