Ancient Gods

Once there were ancient gods.
Gods men worshiped and obeyed
Gods men comforted, stood in awe of, adored
God’s men committed murder for, ravaged countries for, destroyed cities for
Gods men created by men for men.
Now all these gods have been massacred except for
Me, of course, the female one, the intelligent one, the one who will restore the earth
And that other one—the male.
It will take time with the male.
