[surrounded by foes]
worrisome your situation
[like with tubes up your nose]
the greater the temptation
to solicit divine intervention…
cornered or frightened
we subscribe to the supernatural
as for afterlives – apparently children
aren’t the only ones afraid of the dark.
that, supposedly, there are no atheists in the trenches
never struck me as an advertisement
but seemed more an admission…
that faith was designed for the fearful.
