Under a Sign

What a vague and flexible
Concept a God is,
A trading post for ideas
Where treaties are made

Under one protective sign
That means many things
To the negotiators
And the horse traders

Sheltering their business there.
A dispute burns a post down,
A post is abandoned

Or besieged, becomes a fort.
Less business gets done
In the palisades' shadow,
But still, some gets done.

It's the desire to transact
But get the better
Of the transaction that makes
God flexible, vague.
