Posts Tagged ‘lighter gods’

Many a man with a callused “paw,”

Has chiseled away at stone.      

Workmen have made lighter gods of wood,

Inlaid here and there with bone.

Some have a hank’ring for gold,

Gold dug from beneath the sod.         

Clothing so fine (or bright pearls to entwine),

Also serve time as god.

Gold as a god? Or mere Pearls?

Or thin lumber so easily grown?

“Surely you jest;  making god? 

“You — you didn’t make your own?”  -eab, 12/97
