Poor Little Atheist

I love this poem by Charles Strouse and Dan Barker. Here’s an excerpt:

Lutherans have liturgies. Calvinists have creeds.
Muslims have their minarets. Catholics have their beads.
Methodists have methods, Holy Truth to ascertain,
But poor little me, I only have a brain.

Bishops transubstantiate. Shintos ring their bells.

Transcendentalists meditate. Wiccans weave their spells.
Hindus chant a mantra when they can’t relieve the pain,
But poor little me, I only have a brain.

Your turn to write the next verse!

""For a religion that is supposed to be concerned about the truth,..."Christians talk about "truth" ..."
