What God might think….Posted: May 24, 2012
What (maybe) God (might) think of the world.
thought God –
“ a programme about something
which many of them do not believe to be here”,
and switched to BBC 2
and poured a metaphysical pint of beer.
“Hmmm …a curious mix of sceptics
and the very devout…
and that young man, Vine?
whilst hardly divine, certainly seems devoted;
wonder how the punters voted?”
and so sat waiting , for a sign.
on the TV –
and nothing at all,
beginning and end,
a blessing, a curse,
and sometimes – in my name – (which is?)
something infinitely worse.
Hotel room reading
and sometimes the trash can.
Prayers, prayers and more prayers,
and holy folk
eternally splitting hairs.”
And so sat back, and wept a little, for such cares.
“ News? I’ve heard it all before.
Ought to show them the eternal door!
Always fretting over the Great Question :
Oh! Why, oh why?
Well, I’m not waiting
on all your debating.
The only advice I can give
whether I may be,
do or do not live, is,
that you would be wise to keep me in mind.”
And so sat up, and flipped channels to Sky.
