Though it’s unpopular I take this stand
Declaring that there is no bogyman
Nor even a supernal guiding hand.
I comprehend that there is no grand plan
Or purpose to phenomenon we see
Except what is imposed on it by man.
With careful thought it’s obvious to me
That nature’s permutations are the norm
And not an aberration by decree.
An incremental process does transform
In unending varieties to fill
Without the need for wisdom to inform.
Though sans design, the mind can ponder still
Appreciating with a wond’rous awe
Complexity compiled without a skill.
Only the willful blind will find a flaw
In a cosmos that is all that there is
Without the deities they never saw.
