                    There’s something with which matter is infused,
                    Though not so much an entity as force,
                    By which all things are spiritually enthused
                    And set upon a purpose-ordered course.

                   How otherwise could we have come to be
                   Not only animate and conscious but
                   Invested with a will that’s partly free
                   And able to decide by brain and gut?

                   We’ve come to call this motivation “GOD,”
                   Good Orderly Direction’s acronym,
                   By which we’re elevated from mere sod,
                   A force we have personified as Him.

                       We’re better off the more we keep in touch
                       With what from nothing made so blessed much.
