just words of men, seeking peace and truth
often simple letters, like you’d write a friend
meaning something at the time
to those for whom they were written
held up on high as holy words
by those who heard and thought they knew
words, it seemed, came straight from God
even now, debate the Bible we do
its words, their meaning, and
from whose lips these words first fell
no one answer, for all will work
my guess, not at all literally true
