The Problem of God

The problem of God does not rest
to verify Truth's clout.
But in fact, it is the test:
Disintegrate the Doubt.

I can point, as well as you,
at plants and books and joints,
and say, "There he is." He is what?
Precisely, that's my point.

The God you see, He's not for me,
Infact, He's not a he,
Nor a she, nor an it.
No, he is nothing.

So when you pray,
Remember all
the times you prayed for naught.
And when you pray,
Remember all
the people who have not.
And when you pray,
Remember all
the things he said to you...
Er, read to you...
Er, wrote to you...
Er, what now did he do?

Too many Gods, too many gods!
Oh, what now should I do?
This one's book is that one's book
And now there's three more, too!

Why all the changes? Why not agree?
Who's god is mostly right?
I think I'll settle with myself:
My trust in man's not slight.

The problem of God does not rest
to verify Truth's clout.
But in fact, it is the test:
Disintegrate the Doubt.

And still I doubt.

The End
