I know you are bringing a message
putting your offer out there,
eager to read from that bible you hold
but don’t, please don’t, proffer your fare
I’m wondering just how you measure
the numbers you might convert.
do you calculate one in a thousand
and how is that possibly worth
I’m feeling a little mean-hearted
at sending you both away.
would a cup of tea offer have hurt me?
This, my atheist prayer today.
