Heavens and hells

and magic and sin

lose all meaning

away from the myth


To say to the other

outside the faithful

You walk in sin

Is to speak without sense


To finger desires

and thoughts as sin

is a backward shame

of low superstition


Sin is a lie

There is no redemption

for sham ideas

whose time has come
