"Patron Saint of the Agnostic Soldier"


Read the whole thing

So with one last word
To one last god
I trust myself to your care
Because, Venus, after all,
Your human form is the only one
I can honestly say
I ever truly worshipped

And that's very Heinleinian, indeed.

My thanks, too. My military experience was similar, though I had less evangelicals around me in my time than he did. His poem is outstanding and I wish I'd had that to carry with me when I was serving.
