Godless By



Godless By
Godless thinkers-like-gods
Feel so close to reach
Once-demands, super-odds, –
Generations to ditch

Were exempted from stress
Of achieving the humble:
Now tragedy, mess
Out of arrogance stumble!..

Godly haughty, to think
Idols truly divine –
These reflections just link
To reflectors to mind:

Foundations profound
Are exalted to vaults,
Building, leading – and bound
In abundance of doors!..

Likeness leakers so likes
To so lucrative leash:
Rise that higher on spikes
And partake of the dish!

God-dared spacecraft is shipped
On the black-holy-way:
Milky nectar was tipped
By ambrosia-ray!..
