From smidgens of religion

From smidgens of religion —
ancient books of primitive morality and magical people
(Moses and Jesus, et al.),
golden plates, stone tablets, and Puritan steeples,
lost arks, buried temples, and cryptic scrawl
of Christians and Jews and Mormons and Masons —
the myth of America is spun.
