Knowledge

Alma Kaye

Open the doors of Knowledge wide;
Brush the dust of Ignorance aside.
Let Truth shine bright on all mankind
And release the shackles of the mind.
 
Trample tradition underfoot,
Tear out Theology by the root;
Plant sane, clean thinking in its stead-
No more on Christian tales be fed.
 
Listen not to the petty Preacher
Nor the vapid Bible Teacher,
But rather turn to the Scientist
And noble Anthropologist.
 
In your Philosophy be sane,
And do not overcome Lifes pain
By seeking solace from the Priest-
Be bold and freeAn Atheist.
