The Defyer

In life an atheist was he,
Devoid of any Christian faith;
Proclaiming loudly, confident,
There was no God.

In death he took his rest in stone,
More thick the world had never known,
And this engraved: "No judgement day
Will break this pod."

Below the words a crack appears
And struggling up, a young green tree
From seed long since interred, that shows
God does not nod.
