On Honeygate

Religion’s not the sole unrighteousness
In your philosophy, we’ve learned of late:
Caught in the act (high-minded, humourless)
Hightailing hot goods to an airport gate –
A jar, specifically, of sandwich spread –
Reports relay your patented contempt,
Determining the art of protest’s dead.
Did you expect to be declared exempt
At once, on turning up, from rules in place?
We laugh because your notion customs might,
Kafir, favour you simply for your face
Isn’t far wrong. That onlookers make light
Now of your trouble’s just, if jibe-filled. Honey,
Say what you like – the world’ll say it’s funny.

    I particularly like Dawkins whining about not whining about his honey.

    Oooh, a sonnet of snark! As a composer of formal poetry (I do it as a standup routine), I award a hearty applause to this. :)

    One of my favourite groups of my own sonnets: Star Wars IV: A New Hope, in Sonnets.

    Honeygate in the way Dawkins himself might understand:
    We are making fun of Dawkins the same way atheists make fun of christians who say:
    What? A talking snake? That can’t be true, maybe this bible stuff isn’t the literal word of god!
    (said christian still remaining convinced of christianity of course)
