FAITH OR FACT
Now I’ve heard tell of many things that seem
Preposterous, though people claim they’re true;
Perhaps they’re just a dream, or worse, a scheme
Intended to bamboozle me and you.
The worst of these abuse religion’s name
And propagate some holy True Belief
But proves no more than a con artist’s game,
That when exposed, brings its poor dupes to grief.
What holy creed then proves most credible
Proclaiming supernatural truths above
Not made of empty promises, but full
Of valid evidence of lasting love?
Perhaps it’s not a faith we’re looking for
But fact: it’s acts of love we should adore.
