Our Father

Our father who
aren’t in heaven
or hell
dear brother
he lives
down the road
he parts nothing
but hair
and women’s legs
he flips a switch
for light
and says
let there be a bill
he was born
of no virgin
and will die
to serve worms

Sardonic in nature, with an underlying sense of wry humour. Don't wish to read too much into this, so I won't. Case in point, an alternate title might have been, 'The Licentious Barber.' ; -)
Sharp and to the point.
