Poem of the Week: Heaven

After much ado, I have written the Poem of the Week: Heaven. The name is used in irony; it is in fact a critique of religion, and its pernicious paragons. It aims to highlight the double standards and discrepancies of Abrahamic religions.

The poem is written in a fixed pentameter; it is quite classical in that sense. You can observe that the structure remains unbroken throughout; this is important. The poem’s structure is highlighting the rigidity and inflexibility of the topic, and of the past; and as I’m sure you’ll agree, this is a limiting factor.

Okay, enough with the lecture. Let it speak for itself.
