Emily Dickinson - "Heavenly Father" -- take to thee

"Heavenly Father" -- take to thee
The supreme iniquity
Fashioned by thy candid Hand
In a moment contraband --
Though to trust us -- seems to us
More respectful -- "We are Dust" --
We apologize to thee
For thine own Duplicity --

This poem is throwing back into "Gods" face that through his own "duplicity" he has caused his human form to apologise for his creation of them.

This poem is a good poem that focuses on the fact of the matter of god and the religion works and the religious meaning in the world.........
