Con, or: Version

A Limerick

I've always been and will remain a Jew.
I've had faith and have doubted too.
Some think Jews should convert;
But, while I mean them no hurt,
To me, their canons ring no less untrue.

I’m sharing this limerick for yesterday’s d’Verse OLN.

It reflects how I feel about religion – it’s all unprovable (HAHA! I accidentally wrote ‘improvable’), and much of it is nonsense, but Judaism happens to be my ancestors’ nonsense, and therefore I’m committed to it.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

  1. Humanity .. in my opinion is what matters at the end of the day – a person can be religious as anything and still be a horrible individual… so yes. We are what we are. Proud to be so. ❤️❤️❤️
