I would have all the cardinals, archbishops, bishops,
priests and clergymen admit that they know nothing about theology,
human race, nothing about devils or ghosts, gods or angels. I would
have them tell all their “flocks” to think for themselves.
I would like to see all the politicians changed to statesmen,
– to men who long to serve their country, — to men
who care more for public good than private gain —
men who long to be of use.
I would like to prohibit slander and misrepresentation,
and to let the private affairs of the people alone.
I would like to see the whole world free — free from superstition.
This would do for this Christmas.
The next Christmas, I may want more.
I drink to that
Is it too early for a Negroni? No, I rather thought not.

Shove in a slice of orange. Drink. Feel better.
