at moonrise
the ghost on the gallows
hangs in silhouette against a backdrop
of raw illusion

the ravens perch motionless
adhere like disciples
to the hallowed guess

and the loons who believe
the moon is blue and made of cheese
drop to their knees
and surrender

About Bill Sargeant

My name is Bill Sargeant, i am 51, live in Rhyl, North Wales but originate from London. I am currently writing a philosophical work of non-fiction entitled, The Sins of God. I am an atheist and in this book argue that if God exists then God must be inherently evil. I have written a novel, a dark humoured parody of life in a remote christian village in Snowdonia, am currently writing a second work of fiction, as well as a series of short stories, which explore my atheistic philosophical beliefs as central themes. Also i have written a couple of collections of poetry.
