If...............The only certainty
one has..........is
faith............that something exists;
then.............it follows that
one..............ego is sufficient and
has no need......necessarily
for proof........irrefutable,
of God...........whatever it's true nature.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
True believers should read just the left
while atheists should read just the right.
In-betweeners should link up the weft
thus making a whole that's no doubt slight.

This is fantastic. Two poems in 1, two trains of thought together but as separate as the gulf in belief systems. As said by others an innovative construction, well done.

Very clever indeed! And here I was trying to fill in the blanks. Two poems in one. But when you read it, the breaks give you time to think and consider the message.10!

A perfect trinity presented. I wonder if a trigee could successfully work if it was splitting words as well.. fat.... her son and holy ghost?
