Blasphemous Blogging: The Blog of Edwin Kagin

Blasphemy is the crime of making fun of ridiculous beliefs others hold sacred. This blog is about satire, truth, inquiry, and critical thinking. It is about enjoying life before death. It is about how some try to control many through their notions about a make believe supernatural world and imaginary rewards and punishments after death. This blog says that blasphemy is a good thing, a healthy thing, and a good antidote to harmful superstition. This blog is about freedom. Edwin.

For Helen

For Helen

I am on the waiting list for death
Behind so many friends who jumped the line.
Now you, bad girl, have pushed ahead,
Leaving your once happy flesh
For something neither understood nor known,
At least by me,
Who will, in time, be where you are,
If anywhere.
Forgive me for any unkindness I have done
As I forgive you
For causing me to now so deeply grieve.
