God lust, Blood lust

I interrupt this blog to express the following sentiment inspired by God Wars, as most recently depicted by 9-11-01 and its aftermath....

Concrete cocoons break;
They shatter,
but the spirit within will
fight or fly;
Either way, it will
not be undone
at the hand
of intolerant fire, raging
from afar.

Is there a page or      
a directive
from your holy book
that bleeds?
Would you take the air
from me
because my words,
my symbols are forbidden to
satisfy you?

As powerful as they are,
can't our Gods work this out
amongst themselves?
