Myths of Gods and Rockets

If you believe in miracles,
If you live in an age of them,
Then by god you have to have them.

Any stories about your side,
The history of your people,
Would look stripped naked without them.

Mutatis mutandis, the same
Goes for ages of wizardry,
Nuclear bombs and moon rockets.

If it’s assumed they’re possible,
Your people’s story will look weak
Without some for decoration,

And of course some will be tinsel
And cardboard, DIY, pure lies.
But that’s part of the entrance fee

For cultural competition
And any sort of bragging rights
In whatever age you live in.
