    In their eyes I have seen
    the pin men of madness in marathon trim
    race round the track of the stadium pupil.

    O unbelievers,
    I serve not what you serve
    and you are not serving what I serve,
    nor am I serving what you have served,
    neither are you serving what I serve.
    To you your religion, and to me my religion!
