There’s no bigger threat
than what’s still left to know

Its backbone religion,
as it sits on its throne

What cannot be stated
and proven as fact

Evangelists kidnap
and wear on their backs

With prophecy wrapped
in their folly misled

What’s still undiscovered,
leaves dogma undead

But then when the darkness
moves into light

Revivalists shout,
claiming: “See, we were right”

Leaving two kinds of liars
in this world to be shown

Those twisting the truth
—and those defiling the unknown

(Villanova Pennsylvania: August, 2019)
