Can gods become polluted?
What happened to the Assyrians?
Light darkened and temples looted.
Forms twisted, fallen from sovereigns.
Driven from their home and driven from sanity
Into the world they roam, their names now profanity
Can a fallen god regain it's light
if old praise shall reignite
if old wisdom can bring insight
if old ways purified of blight
Can gods be returned
if worshiped earned
and incensed burned
Or like ancient knowledge lost
Of machines and philosophies
To build an empire at such a cost
called unclean by blind clergies.
We once looked up to those like Horus
Great lights that marked the path before us
Song and hymns from faithful chorus.
Or was it us who shifted focus
To a new god with many pious
Whose held our hand and been our guidance
Whose watched over us in thoughtful silence
And many look to with awe bound reverence
Who praise this god whose name is Science.
Can Science become polluted?
