Give Me More Light

Give Me More Light
Give me more light
I’m getting desperate here, you know
show me what you’ve got
is Ann Landers still around?
read my palm
let a theosophist tell me my aura
help me recall my parents’ bromides
find me an intelligent Creationist
a lawyer good at loopholes.
Show me no scientist’s dead-end truths
Prove instead why hearts are more than brains
why Fatima calloused knees conquer computers.
Or show me skyward something beyond astronomy
show me a god whose gestures don’t seem random.
Show me one way to turn
To find a convincing lie.
