These lines belong to me. This poem: mine.
A careful product of my mind and hand,
brought into being by my own design,
each letter set precisely as I planned.
The basis of my verse is not divine,
nor would I credit something so absurd
as gods or christs or any baseless myth
when history and truth are much preferred
to blind belief. I keep my council with
empiric facts, whence I inscribe each word.
For I have seen that every ode arranged
is but a piece of me: my written wraith.
So I may disregard this thing so strange,
this thing the mislead multitudes call Faith.
