Thomas has left the building

There is less in the blessing than I’m led to believe
and more than to do in the wine.

Incense is no incentive
not very inventive
and everlasting life but only when we’re dead

I got it in my head that religion’s a scam
perpetrated upon man by men,
but then again there may be something in it.

So
I play the odds
pit Gods against Gods
and
hedge my bets.
