Books For Blasphemers: The Qur'an (Part 2)

on Saturday, August 21, 2010
Well, I've reached the midpoint in my challenge for the far-too-long month of August. If you haven't already done so, scroll down to check out my limerick reviews of the Torah (Old Testament) and New Testament. Stay tuned for the Dhammapada (Buddhism), Mahabharata (Hinduism), The Book Of Mormon (You Can't Be Seriousism) and Dianetics (You've Gotta be Fucking Jokingism). But for now, here's the second half of The Qur'an:

With a nod to you Superman buffs
There's an army of spiritual tuffs*
Confederates damned**
The Jinn take a stand
And poor Iblis is doing it rough***

For those who persist with their reading
The second half gives room for breathing
Much warmer and purer
The mystical Suras
Are by then just what you'll be needing

I found this on whole quite confounding
Mixed messages rather astounding
So for all those who claim
That the book's not to blame
Have a read, be not ignorant sounding

(* I talk here of the Jinn, the spirits that walk on earth. They are the coolest religious characters since Jesus's zombies.)
(** The Confederates is the collective term used for all the enemies of God.)
(*** Iblis is, for those that haven't read the book, the archetypal unbeliever.)
