EMPTY ARGUMENT

 

I had an empty argument--
'Twas me, against our Lord
Any word in my defense
Was severed with a sword

Finding folly in my mouth
I recanted, then repented
As it was, the encounter now
In my memory is cemented

'Tis useless to debate with God
Concerning any mortal matter
His Thoughts and Truth are solid, sure
And ours, like glass, will shatter
