The Doomed

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

– John 1:1-5



Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

– Matthew 5:3-9


A Perfect Circle – The Doomed

Behold a new Christ,
Behold the same old horde.
Gather at the altering,
New beginning, new Word.
And the Word was death,
And the Word was without light.
The new beatitude:
“Good luck, you’re on your own.”

Blessed are the fornicates,
May we bend down to be their whores.
Blessed are the rich,
May we labor, deliver them more.
Blessed are the envious.
Bless the slothful, the wrathful, the vain.
Blessed are the gluttonous,
May they feast us to famine and war.

What of the pious, the pure of heart, the peaceful?
What of the meek, the mourning, and the merciful?
All doomed.
All doomed.

Behold a new Christ,
Behold the same old horde.
Gather at the altering,
New beginning, new Word.
And the Word was death,
And the Word was without light.
The new beatitude:
“Good luck…”

What of the pious, the pure of heart, the peaceful?
What of the meek, the mourning, and the merciful?
What of the righteous?
What of the charitable?
What of the truthful, the dutiful, the decent?

Doomed are the poor.
Doomed are the peaceful.
Doomed are the meek.
Doomed are the merciful.
For the Word is now death.
And the Word is now without light.
The new beatitude:
“Fuck the doomed, you’re on your own!”
