AND GOD SAID - OH PERISH MY FIRST NOVEL - THE BIBLE

And God said, " It's so frustrating.

Those pesky narrow groupies that stay glued to the book I helped write thousands of years ago.

Don't they realise what an author thinks about their first novel!

Yuk!

Don't they appreciate progress, a developing skill, a changing world.

 I've helped to write so many since,  but they've all flopped.

Topping the bestseller lists is still my first, The Bible.

Oh perish the day I ever published it.

 It's so misguided, offensive, divisive and discriminatory.

The trouble is there are so many who have gained power over others by using it, that they wouldn't listen, even if I visited them myself.

Actually, they would probably murder me..... "
