Faith is a golden coil That fits so greatly in the binding Of texts that Dictate a non-universal Truth Faith is a silver coil That wraps around you nicely Tightly When times are hard and Icy Faith is a copper coil, Cheap, commonly used and Slithers, a bronze snaking cloud Seeping quickly into Permeable minds Faith is an aluminum coil, The easy way out. Steals from your conscious What can be found in Yourself Faith is essential Needed to man And to man armies Unable to feel soft, Cotton-ball faith Anymore
