Scape Goat

Scape Goat

A Poem by Mark

Hey look! It's the ScapeGoat action figure, complete with pentagram around his neck!
Ya' know he's responsible for all the problems and all the trouble in our family.
Just who the hell does he think he is? We don' t owe him a Godamn thing!
It' s all his fault! It is , it always was, and forever shall be, world without end amen!
Why just look at him, he's so holier than thou! And if I ever did ANYTHING wrong, it was His
Fault! He made me do it! Just then Scape Goat looked up and said," I never in all my years,
Saw anybody blow smoke rings of denial outta their a*s before",and with that, ScapeGoat
Drifted off to sleep......

Thank you very much, but it's not the hand that life deals you, rather how you play it!

yes I agree not sure my sons teddies see it quite like that :)
This is so true.. It made me laugh. I went to a Boy Scout meeting with my pentagram necklace on and it was so funny.. I thought my hair was sticking up..or they new I wrote sexy poetry or got busted with my pants unzipped but no.. they came up to me and asked me why I was a devil worshiper lol...
I was the cause at the moment of all the worlds ills.. :) Uninformed people and their judgements are the curse and the vein of fear.. I so love the smoke rings.. that's good stuff.. :)

If my write made you relate to something, then to me, I did a good job!
Ha pretty funny, I think old Scapegoat might be a necessary evil when it comes to some people and their sanity....or that's what he told me when he said it was fault anyway!

Yes, some do find it necessary. Thanks much Frieda.
it is so easy to project onto others...the old denial thing...

it can't be me, it must be you!

such truth in this.

For some, they are afraid unwilling or unable to look at themselves, therefore it's much easier and .. read more
I love the contradiction in this piece of many facets, religion, culture, proverbial aspects.... interesting this "Scapegoat" like bad karma or a law of Murphy...
Yet, really connected on how we handle, preceive, and act, our living by it....
Beautiful my friend, you always let me ponder :)

It's easy to drift off to sleep when one's mind is not plagued by a guilty conscience!
