I am Johnny Humanity
and I have some questions:
Truth will out?
The moral arc of the universe
bends towards justice?
Good and evil
external forces
acting on the world?
Not questions of pessimism
but agency.
No offense to God (and Satan)
but it is up to us
to do the heavy lifting.
Come join me
in shouting our humanity
at the universe.
