In Time Of Doubt

Outcast stands my Bible on the shelf
Beside the prince of darkness there,
It leans as though to warm itself
Upon the bonfires of Voltaire.
And if I thought that Ferney’s wraith
Could thus adjust such lack of faith
I’d pluck the pair and weigh them out:
The both for wit, but which for doubt?
Ferney was the estate purchased by Voltaire in 1758 just over the French border from Geneva.
