Belief - Poem by Migel Jayasinghe

Unproven belief in an Almighty God
Jehovah, Allah, from the Middle East
Provided Mankind with a timely code
Of moral principles in a paradigm neat.

Religions provoke blind sectarian wars
Of ethnic discord and border conflict;
Proselytising follows the use of force
Empire building rabidly fudamentalist.

Physicists argue the origin of the universe
Philosophers postulate the Creator, a hypothesis
Still unproven and open to diverse
Interpretations requiring full exegesis.

Is it so necessary in a scientific age
To worship idols and get into a rage?
Best harness resources and improve the lot
Of humans on earth whether believers or not.
