Brave New World

You gave us the heavens for wondering at

But knew that one day we’d explore

You hoped that we’d marvel and leave it at that

But somehow you sensed we’d want more

 

In time we’d consider the ancients naïve

So blind to what science would show

We’d laugh at what simpletons chose to believe

When now there is so much we ‘know’

 

So we voyage to find other beings like us

On the rocks flying round us in space

The issue of God we no longer discuss

We sophisticates don’t need His grace

 

And if we alight on a place not too far

Where humanity starts a new day

Will a godless existence endure on that star?

Do we really think man knows the way?
