The Refrain

December 12, 2008

Said she to the Pagan:
“What you ask I cannot give”
Said he to the Christian:
“Without you I cannot live”

Just a pair, certainly a hand
Of the very worst kind
One so fair and the other no faith
In God nor mankind

He, an actor, calls forth a cry
Bright and strong
She, the Siren, tempts with
A much purer song

With honesty, the two come undone
One lesson has yet to be learned
For it is impossible to know the Flame
Without having first been Burned

The most baffling bit of all:
He strikes with anger, she with grace
None ask for commitment now
Here, Darwin, is your human race
