Forgive me for intruding, and: Forgive me for intruding, and for stating this one contrary opinion.  I am a Christian, but I do not find this humorous at all.  I have no interest in Islam, but, after all, millions of people are devout to it.  Decades ago, my first high school sweetheart was an Arabic girl, a Christian, but she had relatives who were Muslims.  She pointed out to me that to make any kind of mockery, even in good humor, of someone's faith, or the object of someone's faith, is crude, even when no harm is meant.  I would not want to read a poem entitled "What's a Christ?" with a head Christian monkey, and a note that dismisses all objection saying "It's humor."  Perhaps, by stretching the imagination almost to breaking, the poem can be imagined as locker room humor, or backroom humor.  But on a public, seriously literary site like postpoems, it is offensive.  I am sorry if I cannot hop on the ol' bandwagon of applauding this poem, but, in good conscience, I cannot.  With due respect, I would ask you to please rethink the presence of this poem on postpoems.

Agreed: Couplets. In the absence of punctuation, line length control (flow, pauses, emphasis). Articles, prepositions, and pronouns at the end of the line leave you hanging. Content fabulous - suggest structure editing. Run all together with no space breaks - wrap-around prose poetry (as a signature style - nice).

I Used To Be: a "lusty broad" then I read a book and became a "lusty lady" "... ruck the rook and rock the hook you lusty book of tones and crooks..." Best rhyme read in a while ~(:D)-

I Love This Transition: "...flavor flanders father..." Neo-surrealism - born in the absence of pauses - miraculous imagery. Inspirational writing.  hybyngerie - love a word in no dictionary! - allets -

I hope you will understand: I hope you will understand that I must disagree.  Not all of us are going to hell, and I have not forfeited my belief in reality in order to hold and cherish my Christian faith.  Your obvious disbelief is, itself, not only imaginary but, sadly, wishful thinking.  But if, for the sake of argument only, my faith is imaginary, why do you need to rail against it by putting a comment on my poem?
