This poem, titled AFTER the actual writing, was alluding to a verse in The Book of Thomas. When the movie 'Stigmata' came out, EVERYBODY was borrowing this book from the library. I had to wait. But in the book was written by Thomas: They Kingdom is everywhere, but people just don't see it. Could it be the animals?

  Blind As A Bat Fallacy

You ever stopped long enough
To watch a bug on its mission?
Are you even allowed
To make such a decision?
Before you stigmatize
The smallest life form
Watch what they're doing
In spite of the storm
Huge feet and poisoning
Wiped away with a crumb
Thrown in the trash
Into the toilet go some
  Okay—now take the dog
  He’s harder to throw away
  How much do you miss him
  As he does you every day?
  Show me a person as loyal
  Minds their own business
  Keeps all of your secrets
  Gossips not your existence
Review now the rodent
Is he really a criminal rat?
Anymore than would be
Your pampered fat cat?
Have you owned such a critter?
This miniature dog in disguise?
Actually better stated: a human
Untainted by pride?
  The point in this matter
  The Kingdom is in your midst
  Pay attention and see it
  Such perfection exists.
