Sonnet 180

What can we see beyond our given sight?
What can we know beyond our own mind’s reach?
The dullard is quite certain he is right,
Entrenched in dogma reason cannot breach.
Then let us all believe the world is flat,
That all celestial objects round us turn;
We choose our gods that they did us begat,
No tenets left for doubting minds to burn.
Now let us write the maxims of our creed,
And silence those who do not here conform;
Then sanctify our every thought and deed
So all beliefs are ones that we condone;
Sound truths arise from doubt, not dictums clear;
Stern doctrine is the truth that all should fear.
