On the brink

It's hard to see

which way the world will tip

 

Will it fall to chaos

With religious hubris

Sweeping the globe

 

We have done that before

in the Middle Ages

Dark days indeed

 

Will religios fervor bring war

and death and destruction?

The hand of God.

 

Or will we learn

to work together

And harness God's gifts

 

Ingenuity, scientific discovery,

understanding of our world,

energy for everyone

 

We stand at the brink.

And I fear which way we will tip.
