Gil Tam

Gil TamI always
argued that
religion
and God were
just fictions.
Stories used
to explain
things beyond
our ken. It
did not make
me the most
popular
man in Spoon
River, a
town that was
quite pious.
But I stuck
to my guns.
I also
believed there
was no such
thing as an
afterlife.
So I’m not
sure what this
is right here,
where I am.
But I am
willing to
entertain
theories on
it without
bowing down
and giving
praise to the
Christian god.
