“the most famous man who ever lived”

hollow is the story of “jesus”---

hollow

like the stamp with which it was printed,

hollow as these other mythical hero

archetypes,

which all bear a supernatural birth,

which all bear the hunting of said hero

as an infant, with an exciting & dramatic

subsequent getaway,

which all bear the entertaining magic tricks during

the hero’s youth,

which all bear the blind adoration, devotion &

worship that follows

when he is seen as “divine,”

only to be betrayed, executed &

for that big fat finale…

RESURRECTION!

(which all christians want to happen for them as well,

be it secretly or not)

 

and then, of course,

our hollowman gets

made into a martyr

for which history is supposed to

weep & remember,

weep & remember,

weep & remember.

 

to say that “jesus” was a man,

to say that he lived at all, that his life was in any way

original or authentic,

is to say the same of Osiris, Hercules, Baal, Attis, Adonis

& Asclepius (to name a few)

were all real people…

all who mr. “jesus” bears just a little more than

coincidental

liking to. 

 

still, over 40% of americans

believe that “he” is going to return within the next 40

years---

this of course has nothing at all to do with

the relative age of those asked &

what their lil’ dreams are of getting to be on the

planet when “he” does, right?

 

(throat clearing)

 

having created a character of fiction,

one which can be mentioned to be

“the most famous man who ever lived,”

seems a bit gratuitous, doesn’t it?

but then again, those who believe it

are the same who believe that there is a

place that they can go

when they are dead &

they will get all the gold stars that they’ve been

earning

all the years that they have been alive---

opportunists,

opportunists,

opportunists,

who will create a “history” in order to

provide themselves an

out---

all so they can sleep at night.
