A ghost that passes through this place
and onto the next, looking for home.
I watch the pointless squabbles and wars
and see the dying as I roam.

Tell me what happened?

I've hated my creator
I've hated my father.
I've loved them both again,
and then gone back to hate.

The ghost utters -
good and evil are but two sluttish lovers
dancing the night away, switching places.

It's dark in here
No one can see anymore
Vision was too frightening, anyway...

"If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh"

Oh my... very deep, very interesting poem here, Frac.  I enjoyed this a lot.

This is so true... it seems that people are becoming less interested in truth, now, and more interested in opinion - enforcing their own opinions and pushing them onto one another.  Good and evil are two sluttish lovers, because good and evil are words we use to describe the same thing from either ends.  Look at all this "Axis of Evil" bull that's floating around lately, and tell me the people in those countries consider themselves the "evil" ones.

Yeah, there is no good and evil, there are just sides.  And if there truly are such things as good and evil, their meaning has been shamelessly skewed over time.  

Thanks for the thoughts, Frac.

Been meaning to reply to this for awhile now, but just never got around to it. So, sorry for the late reply. ^^
Brian already mentioned two of my favourite parts in this, but the whole thing was great. You had some /great/ lines in here. Very thought provoking and unique.

Thankyou both for replying.  I did indeed write this to comment on the axis of evil thing.  I also wrote it to condemn the sort of crap that has happened in my own family throughout my experiences with divorce.  In both the international situation and my own family situation there is no truth, only bs and shady transactions between good and evil.
