Under the Grid

Whose "life beliefs" are certain to be true?
Religions rise and fall, yet none embrace
those existential laws whose truths are glue
that integrates men's minds to realize Grace.
Six billion roam this earth with shallow zest
to rise victorious above their vain
and fractious savagery, and mount the quest
to comprehend their source and soul's domain.
Belief in God is not a licensed pass
to hobble thought, then wishfully invent
perfumes to mask aromas of the ass,
that noses never know its noxious scent.
No single soul is privvy to the plan
Whose sweep defines the destiny of Man.
