"Faith" is a fine invention
When Gentlemen can see—
But Microscopes are prudent
In an Emergency.
This is an anti religious poem. She is calling faith an 'invention' i.e. something made up by people - a technology. In particular, it is an invention used by 'Gentlemen' or the establishment support their version of the 'truth'.
While religion may be a useful 'tool', if you actually want to find the truth of something, especially if its important, then science / actual observation is required.
No. This is a beautiful line of poetry. You just have to read it right.
Al, she didn't exactly specify RELIGIOUS faith. It's a broadly general noun.
faith is a tool much like a microscope...
This a thought that gets straight to the point via the power of the microscope that requires no faith.
Let's just beat it to death. Good grief, people!
So true. I'd rather a microscope than religious books.
I hated this so much I put bleach in my eyes so then I never have to read it again.
Insightful and brilliant lines.....
