A Jew Talks To God In The Twenty First Century
I’ll be honest, God.
This world is embarassing.
Is this the realm where You rested
on the seventh day and said,
“It is good.”?
Certainly you should be proud of Yourself,
you made a beautiful world.
On the other hand,
why does Your so-called crowning creation,
mankind, have to be gassing, maiming,
exploding, poisoning, plotting, eradicating,
expunging, polluting, raping and pillaging?
Why, god, why?
Don’t give me any of that Cain and Abel crap.
I’m a Jew, but the bible sucks,
it explains nothing.
This is the twenty first century.
I want to duck down some rabbit hole
for the next few decades,
find someplace to hide.
Otherwise, I’m going to have to witness
what is to come, and I don’t like it.
How about this, God?
Let’s change the bible to make an eighth day of creation.
On the seventh You rested and said, “It is good.”
On the eighth, You took another look and said,
“Uh oh, I think this still needs a little work.”
