by Jeph Johnson 


Life's merciless disregard

For fairness I equate

With fortuitous and haphazard

Plans I didn't make

Providence seems as random

As aimless circumstance

While God rules His kingdom

Of casualties with chance.  

If there's one Divine Reality

Or the Absolute exists at all,  

I hope to find finality

In something less than protocol.

Reason must then be defined

As whenever I see sane;

Intellect trapped and confined

To the limits of my brain. 

My chaotic quest continues on

To sort through disarray.  

Fortitude has been withdrawn

And I've randomly replaced

The courage with a cowardice

That defines a skeptic's world.  

Evidence has been dismissed

Like I was by the girl
