                    The acronym of G.O.D. may simply mean
                    Good orderly direction to be seen
                    Exhibited throughout the universe,
                    An element in which all things immerse,
                   The Source from which the Cosmos has derived,
                   The means by which all order is contrived.

                   Though some personify this force as a great Father,
                   Others observe the laws of physics, rather:
                   Impersonal, implacable, supreme,
                   Regarding a godhead as but a dream
                   Or fairy tale meant to console a child,
                   Out of our fears and fantasies compiled.

                       I would not be so quick to dismiss God,
                       Who might dispose of us with but a nod.
