A Cup of Heresy from a Cellar of Wine - Prose of Ramadhan Part 74

The Cup of Heresy (Ramadhan Verses #39)
We sip heavy from the cup of heresy
That men call theology.

We pray on a premise of faith,
And men think high of the words
Which we recite like holy spells -

When they desire candy,
We give them candy.

When they desire wizardry,
We give them wizardry.

And when they desire an idea of the divine,
Verily, we give them our cellar of wine.

Lo, if only they had asked for servanthood!
Lo, if only they had sought patience,
We would not offer them such meager rations.
