Memo to a Supreme Being

for the sake of humanity

bring us together in unity

we’re a troubled society

in desperate need of harmony

help us see

the absurdity

of denying diversity

so that we can live

together peacefully

Carp Diem

The Escort

He landed lightly on the mountain top

and looked down into the valley below

bathed in the sunset’s pink glow

with people retiring for the night

he had a job to do in the moonlight

a soul to escort away

by the end of the day

The Skeptic’s View

On religion the skeptic’s view is clear

there’s no invisible guy in the sky

that mankind has to fear

Skeptics find it hard to believe

religion to them, is just a way to deceive

and that faithful followers are all naive

Skeptics often fall back on science

in dogged defiance

of religion’s compliance

taking a wait and see

attitude unapologetically

when it comes to their destiny
