They told us that God created us in his image and likeness. Ha! Did God even say he is a man? Well, I’m wont to think it’s the other way around; that we made god.

We create gods, actually. No reference to Anton Lavey’s Satanic Bible here.

Let’s start with ancient Rome where homosexuality was a norm. There were gay gods.  Continue reading “God Made Man, Man Made Religion, and Religion Made Man Mad”

Smudging the Line 1

At the Restaurant

Note: The next three stories in the series Smudging the Line are fictional. These stories border on the paranormal/horror. They revolve around the protagonist, Luisa.  Any semblance to real people is coincidental.

When I am not listening to people tell me about the problems in their lives, I love to write. I am a psychologist, who derives pleasure from writing random things. Occasionally, I flatter myself and dare say I’m a writer. I write about mental health. Continue reading “Smudging the Line 1”

O, Lucifer, Prince of Darkness!

Many art the works of thine hands

Satan created ovulation cramps.

They were mildly painful but, t wasn’t enow mis’ry f’r the distaff folk.

And he mused, “what m’re shouldst I doth to amerce those folk f’r being so pow’rful?”*

I love puns and allusions! How they colour a story while being effective in passing your message to your audience!

Once upon a time lived three brothers; Ike, Ade, and Audu.

Ike was the oldest and Audu, the youngest. The three lived in a big hut in harmony and love.

One day, Ike decided to embark on a trip to the neighbouring town. Before setting out, he called his brothers to him and said, “Brothers, I’m travelling to the next town. I don’t know when I will be back. I need you two to hold the fort and be careful.” Continue reading “Beefing God. Just Kidding! Actually, Story Time with Cisi”
