Insignificance & the bigger meaning

Today I took a spanner
& disassembled all beliefs.
Nut after nut fell from
books of philosophy
books of religion
books of science.

Today I disemboweled
all the prophets and intellects.
Cutting thru the hubris
I discovered only
fear & trembling.

Today I sifted thru the mind
of man & stumbled
up the stairs
of power & glory.
I saw the many faces
of God crumbling
at the gates of heaven.

Today I unscrewed
all the politicians
& packed them away
in large wooden crates.
I stacked them neatly
in the corner of my kitchen
& forgot all about them.

Today I saw a rainbow
& went digging
for that pot of gold.
