Unbetrothed

Religion and science…

never to wed

 

Like oil and water,

alone in their beds

 

While science defends,

ancient dogma portends

 

Two voices discordant,

to break if they bend

 

For centuries long

they have fought tooth and nail

 

Refusing to budge

out of fear that entails

 

A false understanding,

bells call from within

 

Where marriage awaits

—espoused unto Him

 

(The Book Of Prayers: November, 2020)
