Atheism Billboard 2

Here's another poem inspired by these atheism billboards. This poem was also influenced by an article (that now I can't find) about how technology isn't inherently egalitarian. Some people like to think that more access to technology will solve all our problems, but until we work on ourselves and our society, technology will still reflect personal prejudices and societal inequality.

On the First Day Man Created God

So what? “Man” has created many things.
Tape measures, Big Macs, hula skirts ...
God, however, is still in development.

God beta was divisive and unevenly
distributed. God 2.0 was supposed to solve
everything & put love first.

Now interactive multimedia God promises
true equality, etc.
Wanna bet how that will turn out?
