Sin of Science

Sin of Science
Form: Quatern

The claim that science let the old gods die;
In our wisdom we needed them no more.
They did not speak like they did once before;
We had no time to pray or wonder why.
Our quest for power has brought global pain
The claim that science let the old gods die;
In plumes of smoke that bore the acid rain
We let our poisons destroy earth and sky.
In words of politics we heard Man's lie;
We took control of fate to sate our greed.
The claim that science let the old gods die;
We took and stole from those with greater need.
Mid crimes of hate we voice protest, at last;
And whispered truths have heard our sorrow cry,
As faith returns to see beyond and past
The claim that science let the old gods die
