As I sat at the cafe, I said to myself,
They may talk as they please about what they call pelf,
"There is no God," the wicked saith,
"And truly it's a blessing,
But country folks who live beneath
The shadow and the steeple;
And almost every one when age,
Disease, or sorrows strike him,
And not by eastern windows only,
When daylight comes, comes in the light;
If hopes were dupes, fears may be liars.
Say not the struggle nought availeth,
The labour and the wounds are vain,
Thou shalt not kill; but need'st not strive
Officiously to keep alive:
Thou shalt not covet; but tradition
Approves all forms of competition.
Thou shalt have one God only; who
Would be at the expense of two?
