Whale

The eastern mind describes the western search
for God, akin to 'riding on a whale,
while casting bait for minnows.' Yes, the church
interprets this as one more fishy tale.
The point is, human Life is born intact,
and never fell, and needs no soul be saved.
Though dim to Christian eyes, it is a fact
as men are called to Earth, they're not enslaved
to canned mythologies. A purpose, sure
and certain, shares their lifeblood to the end.
Life's evil is inate and has no cure,
but plays a part to help men comprehend
that all things good, are precious to that Grace
which conscious men of risen mind embrace.
