Deifying themselves,
  the scientists disprove
  with their tools
  the existence of God

To sit on a throne
  artificially made

They loudly decry
  as their courtiers boast
  about how powerful
  their laws have become

While built into their structure
  a flaw starts to crack
  their self-glory
  —a darkening sun

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2019)
