"Faith" is a fine invention
When Gentlemen can see—
But Microscopes are prudent
In an Emergency.

    I think this is about how people trust in traditional methods of cure based largely in trust rather than modern medicine.

    This seems to be about how people trust in traditional methods of cure instead of modern medicine.

    ............when gentlemen can see faith is a fine invention...
    ............in an emergency microscopes are prudent...
    .................I believe she means people only believe what they see...
    ....................so microscopes are necessary for proving what is unseen..

    When times are real bad
    We need technology and faith
    Instead of feeling helpless and sad
    Make use of both and patiently wait

  • Andrew Newman (10/22/2013 3:14:00 PM)

    She calls faith and invention and then compares it to a Microscope, and how usless both are in tough times

  • Majed Fox (9/29/2013 7:03:00 PM)

    Faith is a fine invention
    When Gentlemen can see—
    But Microscopes are prudent
    In an Emergency.
