If the bible wouldn’t have stoned people
For fucking outside their marriage,
(Even when married to impotent,
or tired carpenters)
Then Mary wouldn’t have had to lie about her impregnation.

In which case virginity would never have become so exalted.

In which case billions of little girls,
Over hundreds of generations,
Wouldn’t have had to fear penetration,
(Even by fingers, or vegetation).

In which case their billions of admirers,
Could easily have been their lovers,
Causing less frustration,
And masturbation,
And whores,
And VD induced sores,
And, ultimately, fewer wars.

Therefore I say,
‘Fuck the bible,
And its warnings,
And atonings,
And whippings,
And stonings,
And let’s try to start a new chain reaction,
Producing peaceful men,
At peace with themselves,
And, thus,
(At least potentially)
At peace with others.’
