Exclamation Politics That Eradicate

Oojay...don't piss on this one too. Be a grown up this time, and realize that not everything that doesn't completely agree with Christianity is a personal attack. Not that this is even remotely related to Christianity, but for the sake of being able to have another hissy fit, I'm sure you'll find a way to link it.

Politics That Eradicate

Sky of fire, burn, burn; fuel-leaking planes are going through you.
Antediluvian delusions are today’s reality.
Caesar’s face is engraved in a rock.
He’s whispering ideas to government officials.
So you’ve got a freedom that you call your own,
But you’ve got to have it like your eating Hammurabi’s stone.
The febrile clout clouds judgment at the highest level.
Ovens froze over at negative 1792 degrees,
And incinerators burst apart at 1776 degrees.
Ancient levels unsteady society to ninety degree angles.
All hints of peace, they release one last
Wisp of air in blood-stained breaths, and die away.

History class for we who live in the past?
Well, I guess I’ll catch up on today’s events.
A cold, macabre hand is placed on my shoulder,
I turn, to see Hammurabi’s transparent white face.
I’m frozen as if I was cast into a liquid nitrogen bath.
My mind smashes against a delicate deciduous tree.
The revelation? Hammurabi’s grip is forever.
Your moral advancements…call them: fuel-leaking planes,
Being hurled erratically, senselessly through our skies;
Where someone is igniting a lighter.
Unadorned eradication, through fire.

I don't know, in my opinion the allusions come off as slightly pretentious. Good imagery though. Feel free to completely ignore me.

You have intelligently and coherently expressed your opinion. Solid in my book.

I guess as long as it has nothing to do with God, you're okay with it, then? Also, I'm going to stress this again, I'm not Anti-Christian. I'm anti-bloodshed and anti-greed. I'm also anti-blind faith. I think it hurts a lot more than it helps. And maybe Atheists are hypocritical on some level, but acting like Christians and perfect moral people is just...really, really, really stupid.

No more grudge threads, eh? I don't expect us to be friends, but I do expect us to both act like adults.
^ Never mind that, after hearing about and seeing what happened in the 1 in 10 lounge thread, I have a lot of doubt about you acting adult.

i like it, it has a powerful effect and good imagery, but im not a fan of how exact it is, like the number of degrees, its too exact for me, but otherwise, i like it

I thought the degrees stood for years, 1776, the year of American independence. 1792, the French Revolution... right? This is about politics that eradicate...

Negative 1792, Crowe, think BC, 1792 B.C. That was the year Hammurabi came into power. But you were right for the most part. Good job, and get on AIM, mang.

Omg lol, my 1792 totally fits within the Politics that Eradicate Theme, that's messed up. The French Revolution! Talk about overthrowing an entire government because they were ****ing **** up... man, I'm gonna keep the French Revolution in my head.... it fits so well!
