Much of the Atheism I have failed to understand
owes far more to folks dumping pasts they believe
they never lived - back yards full of metaphors -
only to find said back yards refilling with something
less coherent. As these changing pasts repeat on them
the repeats prove that what they threw out was stronger.
For when folks pass of some shiny new ignorance
as the latest wisdom the pretense becomes all too clear
-they have been where many others have been before,
and deny the route back is still there, all too close behind them.
