Just because I lack a god does not mean I lack a code

I know not to covet my neighbor’s soles and to study the texts I am assigned

And just because I momentarily forgot about the essence of a mezuzah

Does not mean I will become slave to the demons who enter my doorpost

It is true that many of my mortal heroes don’t care for their fans

The artist, the bard, and the filmmaker ran through an eager crowd last night

But I will make the best of a secular life

And prove that although I lack a god, I do not lack a code.
