Fire and Fury


God has recently made clear

That he would push the button:

The red one. Let us raise a cheer.

We know that God’s a glutton


For punishment, for dealing out

The brimstone and the blaze:

What’s, he says, the fuss about –

The world’s seen better days,


I’m omnipresent, bored and cold,

Morality’s gone hang,

The best way to stay warm, I’m told,

Is push this button. (Bang.)


Besides, he says, I look at you,

Your leaders, their demeanours,

A puffball and a cockatoo,

Two braggarts, pair of preeners;


A spiv, a div; two foolish twins

Who clock their mirrors, tweet –

Two imbeciles (and full of sins,

Or I’m no Paraclete),


A nincompoop, a knucklehead,

A birdbrain and a nut,

A pair of cruds who have no cred,

A doofus and a mutt –


One says, Fire full of fury,

One says, Double Dare –

Both dispose with judge and jury.

Why should I really care?


Why shouldn’t I dispose of all?

Aren’t these two perfect omens?

The hard and acid rain must fall

(Just read the Book of Romans).


There there, said God, my little joke.

Ka-boom. A-ha. Go figure.

He rose, and blessed all earthly folk,

But sat down on the trigger.

Fire and Fury

“When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil. In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un.”  (Robert Jeffress, one of President Trump's evangelical advisors.)
