PICKING TIME

So many cults and sects there are,
All grappling to direct your mind,
Towards some higher brain bazaar,
Lest you your own thoughts chance to find.
They taught them different in Ceylon,
Than in the Jewish towns and states,
And Koreans! Look what they have done
To add some fervour to debates!
So many Gods and Mosques and things,
Temples, Churches, Towers, and spires,
Popes and Priests and ruling Kings,
All claiming that the world requires,
The doctrines of their sects; and creeds,
Which state the details of your needs.
