These are the catechisms I have learned

In this seminary

And taken on faith

Those deeper doctrines

That you must obtain the date and dosage

That epinephrine is sympathetic

That the impulse indicates the position of the heart

Perhaps this will help me find mine

In a time when there is a crisis of faith in

Regards to those simpler tenets

Wash your hands

Wear a mask

Believe others when they say “please”

What use is mastery of the theology of human form

While remaining agnostic about human kindness?
