Three Holies sat in sacred place...

Three Holies sat in sacred place
        And quaffed celestial wine,
As they discussed the human race
        With dignity divine.
Said they: 'Although in doctrine we
        May differ more or less,
In spirit stoutly we agree
        Religion's a success.'

Said One: 'I praise the pride of war,
        The Faith that mocks at fear;
Desire of death in battle for
        It bringeth Heaven near.'
The Second said: ''Tis Peace I preach,
        And hate of human strife;
The sufferance of pain I teach,
        The sanctity of life.'

Then said the Third: 'Love I proclaim
        The goal of human good . . .
Yet are we not all three the same
        In holy brotherhood?'
And so they went forth hand in hand,
        Wending a starry way,--
Mohamet, gentle Buddha and
        He of Gethsemenè.
