Primal Religion - Poem by Belmont W. Adams

Out in the forest last night, my dear,
Facing a brute, I trembled with fear.
The sauro, coming on, increasingly near--
I yelled to the god you told me about --
No time left - just time for one shout --
One breath, one word -- "Da-a-ay-Oh!!"
I knew I would die----------and pront-to!!
But out of the sky a lightning came!!
Instantly, that sauro dead became!!
My dear, you're right - your god is real!!
Dao can do anything, even surreal!!
Go! Tell all of our clan - Come here!!
We'll join, and worship Dao, and never know fear!!
