Joke or Joker?

Back when I was a kid,
You were too big to imagine.
Made long trips
to be in your presence.
It always felt weird.
Something absurd.
You were supposed to be everywhere
watching everything.
Yet when we wanted to meet you,
we had to queue up.
You were above and beyond
all doubt.
Blind faith.
You were beyond all knowledge.
Reason stood no chance
to understand your infinite power.
Questions were hushed up.
Answers were rare.
People kill each other in your name.
But what can we say,
you are omniscient.
Foolishness has limits.
But when it is you,
there can be none.
Little did I know,
we created you,
the best variable ever,
a joker card which can fit
in every gap science cannot fill,
a drug more addictive than any other,
billions have been hallucinating,
for thousands of years,
millions have died in your name,
millions will,
while you remain invisible
without any proof.
I cannot blame you
Because you don't exist.
When Man wanted to hide his ignorance
he named it God.

Hey FJ,
Welcome back! Good one buddy!
"the best variable ever,

Great lines!
"When Man wanted to hide his ignorance
he named it God."
A good shot in the end ... as usual

Good one!!!

"When man wanted to hide his ignorance he named it God"... I would say, in addition God comes handy when man wants to avoid himself being blamed for some things...

Hey FJ,

I'm one of ur fans when it comes 2 poem. Came across AKP blog and Been a silent reader for so long but i think its not fair 2 leave without commenting abt ur such wonderful unique creations. U really know how 2 play with words and get ppls hooked up 2 ur writing. Wonderful and unique wording when it comes 2 poem. Keep up this wonderful work.

Abt this poem, i'm not quite totally agree with ur complete view of God when the whole concept of God itself is a very big Question in me, but as usual, my eyes got nailed in ur wordings. Such a wonderful poem... specially these lines "People kill each other in your name.But what can we say,
you are omniscient." "the best variable ever,... a drug more addictive than any other" "When Man wanted to hide his ignorance he named it God."

Unique creative thought and wordings...
