Instruction and Institution

Ask a question.

Doubt a lie.

Tell a story.

Is it true?

Someone wrote it.

Someone made it up

In their head.

Could it have come from God?

Not directly, surely.

No mountaintop bestowal

Of stone tablets.

And whether or not

THAT happened, is questionable.

It makes for a great story, though,

And the story is useful

For instruction and institution.

Let’s just leave it at that.
