He would punish her for even the slightest display of disobedience, even of independence; not following orders, failing to call him sir, talking back to him in an irreverent tone.

Irreverent. Honestly have no idea what the word means. It sounds like you are not being respectful of something which demands and deserves your respect. Like God. Using his name in vain possibly could be irreverent. Maybe that’s just because you can kind of see reverend in it. I’m not sure. Interesting comparison there though. I have two weeks lets live them like crazy, lets not sit hid in my apartment waiting for the eventual day. It’s two weeks lets enjoy them. Starting tomorrow. Live my life that’s what I’ll do. Meet new people. Find new places. I got this.

reShe throws the crystal cup at his feet. It hits the tile in a wave of glass, silver and sparkle shards falling over his sneakers. She yells again, unaware that anyone is watching. The echo of the shatter was enough to draw eyes, however, and they are not the only ones in the cavernous church any longer.

laughing byt the pool
in our bikinis
yours fits you better
yours is snug tight
mine awkward i’m still all arms and legs
but it hardly matters
as we laugh at the lifeguard
calling seriously to all the other kids
to not jump

except today we suppose
they’ve gone on a bit of a

I am often irreverent in the most reverent places. For example, I have been known to write my grocery list while the sermon is in full swing. I figure it’s multi tasking, but my children have found it irreverent. Once in a museum of doe eyed figurines, I laughed hysterically. All the faces are the same yet many collectors have cabinets filled with these things. It’s rather irreverent, I think to make Baby Jesus, Joseph, and Mary have the same face. Irreverent. Love the word and love the action of being irreverent.

The voice of his generation, some said.
Ground-breaking and fresh, said others.
Crass, still others would say.
Irreverent, they all agreed.

Adam snorted at her words irreverently. Udeterred, she continued: ‘I have found a purpose in life, and I cannot tell you how much of a difference my belief in the Other has made in my life!’

I was the devil on your shoulder; I held the wine to your lips
Fed you bites of poison apple between your shy, cautious sips
The snake that led you to the garden where you emerged a sinner
Your heart infected with my venom, blood slowly running thinner.

“You heathens! How DARE you be so irreverent! This is a house of God.”
I shoved him away, brandishing my sword with purpose. “Not MY god.” I spat. “So watch yourself, old man.”
“You tell ‘im, Chandrie.” he said, laughing as he proceeded to shovel gold from the collection box into his pack.

There she was. Staring at the huge feet before her. Bend lower and kiss it, like everyone else? Does god really care? Is he standing there watching? So she left.

Homeboy came up, gassed. Had a 10 spot he copped from his grandma, told her he was hungry…big boys always hungry but dope comes first. Little did he know, i just sold that last 10 to the light skinned boy up the street…he was pissed. Spit at my feet! Rode off like the mac, i could give a fuck less

She doesn’t like the tone of his voice or the flippant, leaning posture. One of his slender blond eyebrows is cocked, and the longer she stares at him, the more his malignancy seems to grow. He draws his mouth up in an irreverent sneer and takes a single step forward in response.

These kids, have they not any sense of respect? Any sense of discipline? I was so angry when I heard “This is boring,” and “We only do boring things in this class”. Then why am I here? Why am I taking the time to teach you something that took me 4 years to get okay at? Why are any teachers here in the first place? To change a life, to give a different perspective, to inspire a new way of thinking. So until these little irreverent punks get it together I will allow my heart to be torn to shreds if not to teach them to appreciate those around them. So that the next teacher they have will not have to deal with these kid’s disrespect

The young man laughed as the preacher talked to his congregation. What a silly old man he was. He was wearing a bright yellow-and-red costume with a green wig. What on earth was happening? Slowly, he crept toward the man and dropped a water balloon. Bombs away!

the flowers grew and then he shaved

irreverent and beside i have
a satchel full of bullets
irrelevant yet irreverent…

Nobody cares anymore. We’ve grown irreverent of the big issues that continuously wrap our society. Stop ignorance, and start paying attention.

Her smudge of a freckle squished into a nearby wrinkle as she profusely protested. The nonsensical, but sophistically natural, bullets shot out of her freshly-licked lips. But there were others around; their stares bored into every pore of my skin that I instinctively tried to scratch off. But was it instinct or just shame?

I took to the sky
Ran in the reign of fire
Regarded the dragons
Entered the caves
Violated his sanctuary
Entered under the underwater River
Rented a ferry
Entered under the sirens
Not wanting your attention (but seeing I got it)
Telling you a story.

she was irreverent in regards to all of it. she felt she was left with no choice. maybe she was—choiceless. even with no choices its odd she opted for this one. this way of things. this view. could she have gone about this any other way?

A brand I work with here at my agency has a “personality” described as irreverent. It is a carbonated soda full of sugar and caffeine and is marketed to young men who may not take things (like their health, apparently) very seriously. I always thought it was somewhat ridiculous but for the past 20 years, this has been the key brand attribute of this drink.

“Have you been out yet today?” she asked as she passed through the room. She was out the other door before I could answer, and responding would have been an irrelevant gesture in any case. Sitting here with a cast from hip to ankle made moving difficult and chasing her impossible.I had gotten used to her rhetorical questions weeks ago. They were were like the intermittent itching under the cast, a symptom of this condition and able to be ignored for short periods.
“I’ve brought you some soup today. Will you need anything else?” She was syncopating her questions with banging pans and slamming drawers in the kitchen. The frenetic noises a cruel contrast to my enforces inactivity. At leisure I considered a range of responses, editing out those that were predominantly expletives. I considered and rejected the one where I told her that while I was an invalid I still had teeth that needed to be exercised occasionally.

“Pfft. I don’t see what the fuss is about. S’just trees.”
Andrea stared at Jack, a bit aghast at what he had just said. “Just trees? These trees are centuries old! They’ve been here longer than you have. Longer than your great-grandparents have!”
“Yeah, and? So’ve rocks, right? I don’t get all gooey-eyed over rocks.”
“Rocks aren’t alive,” she pointed out crossly. “It’s different when things are alive.”

“You talk as if you’re supposed to be all high-fallutin. But here you are, drinking a pint, making fun of gods. I don’t understand you.”
“I suppose I’m a bit holy, but that’s no reason to refrain from being irreverent. Gods need a good razzing when you deal with them. Otherwise the buggers start thinking they run the place.”

Irreverence for Death is what got her here in the first place. Now, across the table from him and with the last sugar cubes in her hand, she had nothing left to say. Except, cheekily, a dare: A date? One last night–for her–on the town. A stay of execution, as it were.
Death considered. And agreed.

I had no idea what this word meant before I looked it up today. I’m pathetic. I need to get a better vocabulary. I feel like I fit in with my generation because I don’t know what this word meant.

This world is filled with irreverence. Irreverence for people, but more irreverence for mother nature, our bodies and our health. If irreverence is your pet peeve, well you are your own worst enemy.
The child looked at her mother irreverently. Her mother glared at her, trying to burn a hole into her daughter’s head. She was in deep trouble and she knew it.

you were irreverent to me obviously
walked talked ignored me carelessly
acted like i was nothing continuously
alas i was nothing is true i confess boldly

Irreverently, he scoffed at my teachings, and claimed he knew better. I laughed and stroked my beard as he fell to the lion. Children need to learn there is no substitute for age in the pursuit of wisdom.
