Poem : the Atheistic Bible

My reply to the suggestion that the books of the Harry Potter series might be representative of a modern, atheistic “bible”:

There are no needs for tracts nor screeds to bolster non-belief.
No threats nor bribes from ancient tribes
need give our doubts relief.
Our skepticism leaves no schism; we embrace our doubt;
An atheistic bible? We could all do well without…
