The ongoing story of Jesus waking up in Chicago, in the body of an agnostic writer,
who is nothing like the Son of God the right-wing Christians watching him expected.

You are welcome to share my work with a link bank... keep getting asked this...

Last time I was here, I told them I would not lead a revolution, that I was there to spread heresy. The crowds thinned. The day they killed me, I marched alone... This time I have returned to find Romes Soldiers Sleeping, content they have killed off the Troublesome Jew. I was surprised how bloody the Indiana boy became as my sword fell again and again ....

In the years since this story began in 2007, my secret fame has spread out from the halls of power that kept me secret all these years, as they waited for the Christ to finally wake up...

I try to imagine their anticipation.

Remember a dream I had in my twenties about running thru Chicago screaming that Christ was coming back, and man oh man was I happy... a cloud came through the middle of the skyscrapers above me, in the thin strip of blue above Dowtown State street, and I expected to see Christ... instead, just a bunch of musicians painted up like Ziggy stardust.

I surprised my keepers. They thought they had me figured out from the Bible. If that book could have told you everything, there would be no need at all for me.

Jesus: "I have become Known across this planet as a dangerous man with a growing force of hidden followers who value my orders more than life itself. A prophet of war. Once and future King in a court of shadows. Life and death in my hands every damn day. I ROAR, your most mighty shit themselves and run. I make myself a known threat, so I can try to negotiate what otherwise requires bullets and blood. I am here to free the enslaved in body and mind. I cannot be defeated. When the Will of God and The WILL OF THE PEOPLE ARE ONE, NO FORCE ON EARTH CAN STOP US!"


We come into this life expecting too much and leave expecting too little

I am a warrior poet from a line of ancient kings
General Factor X

lead an army from the bunker of obscurity
life and death in my hands every damn day
the first man ever drafted into generalship
every mistake a bloody mess
the assassins everywhere

Confused by God and man
cut open and splayed for reality tv 
as I screamed that I was a prisoner
the viewers just laughed and went along

I am surrounded by neutered's 
who take a smug pride in being slaves

My enemies tried to defeat me without martyring my flesh
left me bloody and broken and half mad...   
silently content in the knowledge 
I would issue their death sentences.

never meant to have this life
never wanted anything more than a simple love
simple words
simple ways
they drew first blood
brought on the wrath of war hardened lion

I have been mistaken for many things
a mirror
an alien
a communist
a republican
a peace nik
a war monger
gay and straight 

this is what happens when the media can take a split second of a life 
and say it rep's all the other years.... 

bush-lite called me 'just a writer and a whiner'
when I had my hands around his brother's throat
I let him go
even as the crowds screamed for his blood
his entire family owes me their lives
they can rewrite history anyway they want
they were defeated by a long haired stoner
brought to their knees
by the forces of disgust 

been to the mountain and the mole hill
They're surrounded by crowds mistaking one for the other

thomas paine come round again
this time I won't let you steal my words to enslave
This time my words are a key to the jails
written on a broad sheet passed instantly around the world

Jesus come round again
this time I won't let you steal my words to enslave
This time I have a sword 
the Roman's backed off quick
sent their Pope to offer me a crown

Drunken Ghost dancer come round again
this time I won't let you steal my words to enslave
This time I  make true my vision of a world without predators
even if I have to burn all this shit down 

I have shown mercy to those who have shown none for too long
I have pretended all is right in the world for too long
I have watched from a distance for too long

I am prepared 
to throw off the cloak of anonymity and lead the march

God Grant Me The Power to free your people
and let them rule themselves

I pushed the Dow up to 1400

Remember that day?
Sure you do....

Then you stole from me
and you watched it drop
I will continue to punish each and everyone of you until this is made right
the sins of the one are the sins of the nation
He rules you whether you acknowledge Him or NOT

Who would oppress me?

Who would think there is no redemption for their sins?

Who would think they are better off Godless?

better find out MAN
better find out

you have no idea    no idea   no idea
what is going on around here

and will always be
I have
no reason to prove myself
no reason
to do anything more
than wait for God
to say
the End

within me
is the fire and lightening
that will destroy your flesh

within me
is a map through the stars

within me

      There should have been more here about how this would drive me to go to my buddies

      with guns and say, Let's start the shit.? Of course, this is ficition... too bad.

The Reluctant Must Rule

All mankind must be humbled
As the dying by death
to enter my Father's court

a thousand year Peace

I have seen the world ending in my visions and dreams
A thousand years from now or tomorrow...  I ask the Father
His silence makes me fatalistic
ready at any second to flee the flesh and leave for his court

I am a warrior for peace
the irony does not escape me...
taunts me like a cruel teen with a toddler...

I  told you i would return and that was not enough
They wanted me to lead a revolution in Israel
A messiah with a sword
When they found my mission was to spread heresy the crowds thinned
the day they killed me I marched alone

the time is here
the Order Has Come Down

Revolutionaries Must Remember
How simple you talk to simple minds will determine whether you are understood or not
so come down from your fucking ivory towers and get your ass to work

I tell you the ethics of the animal is inside of you
under your words
as simple as an infants love for it's mother
your theories and wizards and con men have deluded you
into listening to lying lawyers
our ethics must be as simple as the growth of a flower
justice brings peace and peace brings love

you fight for the justice
to get the peace
you walk up the Calvary
to bring Forgiveness
for the soldiers ORDERED to lash your back

The time of the Alpha is long behind us
I am the Omega
Here to reward the righteous and send the others into their next life
praying that the this time
we have finally learned to raise them right
finally educated
them all
 them all
them all

Waking Up God

There are people all over the planet proclaiming they are Jesus. Another reason for me just to stay shut up. I meet a lot of people who have no idea who I am, at all. If I told them this, they would think I was nuts. I have to balance this with all the people who know about me, and look to me for leadership. 

Some people are always going to hate religion. Some people are going to go crazy and say they are God, whether it is a con, or something they really believe. I knew someone who was raised by his parents to think he was Christ, and thought so until he was 14. It is literally all over the place. In the time of the traditional Christ, there were false prophets all over the place.

I do not know if they are evil, though I suspect that they are. They say they are a deity to gain the power of that Deity, not to do any real good. This is another reason why I act, and sometimes very, very reluctantly, only when God kind of shoves me out of the plane.

I was offered the United States once.. when I first came out. I wrote how I loved Ceaser Chavez and Bush went down to tear the fence down between here and mexico. I was stunned by this, still not quite believing what was happening to me. I told them then, I BELIEVE IN A SEPARATION BETWEEN CHURCH AND STATE. A religious deity in politics would issue orders, rather than ask the permission of the people, which is how a government must be run to be pleasing in my eye, really. 

I told you, I have a lot of proof about what happened to me. I did not wake up one night thinking this. Others believed it fervently before back when I was an atheist... which puzzled the hell out of them... In fact, during this period, I held up Christopher Hitchens as an athiest who was fearlessly criticizing the church... I love them. God loves them, too... He loves everyone, and creating them to be critics.... Anyways, he is now dying of cancer. Very sad, and somewhat suspicious, but I who knows... the intelligent agencies have perfected how to give cancer, and use it to get rid of people in the public eye, who would cause a stink if just killed.... not that they do not do that, too.

This is why I told you that I cause chaos when exposed. It happened before. In fact, I said something about Kafka that was mistaken to be anti-semitic, and Bush went after the Jews. It got so I could say nothing without making sure it was dummied down enough that everyone understood. It was crippling to me as a writer and an intellectual, as you can imagine. 

Anyways, a good rule of thumb is to stay away from anyone who says God speaks to them and all this shit, let alone people who declare themselves to be God. He has never spoken to me, merely showed me things. In my revelation, the only word he knows is love. Most of these people who say they are God, or have some new age solution, are just trying to gain power over you, like some fortune teller, to get your money and worship. 

I hope I am getting this across to you.\\
