Not having written a poem for, oh, 30 years maybe I felt compelled to write an Atheist Prayer. I'd appreciate some help in fine-tuning it a bit:
My Atheist Prayer
God, save us from those who believe in you.
May I learn how little I know
May I use science to always discover truth
May I not stand in the way of another's dreams
May they not stand in the way of mine
May I know, when I die, I did my best
May I leave the world, a better place
To where I go I do not know
But I trust
Heaven, is for atheists.
Purposely, it does not rhyme to thumb my nose at the teacher in 8th grade who told me that all poems had to!
