Rodak's Writings: Sola Fides

Sola Fides

A priest,
be he Aztec,
Sadducee, or Franciscan,
is one whose livelihood
depends on being believed
when he asserts
the absolute necessity
of his station: a salesman—

a fisher of those willing to believe
there exists a sure thing
in a world designed by the Creator
with probability
as the sole binding agent.
