The Winner Is

By Frederick Foote

The Winner Is

He used his
inculcated faith
in reason
and logic
with facts
to prove
the truth

She used faith
based on inspiration
steadied by indoctrination
informed by revelation
guided by intuition
to find salvation

On the
battlefield
they jousted

The lance of logic
splintered on
the shield
of faith

The razor
of reason
sliced veins
and arteries

He moved
to tend
her wounds

She split
his heart
with the
dagger
of piety
and a
virtuous
prayer

Salvation
found him
lost her
