God And The World

God is a traffic cop
conducting a mad symphony
in the busiest intersection,
wildly tooting his whistle
and gleefully waving his arms
at all manner of vehicles rushing by—
and the crazier the driver, the better!

This was good. Some great imagery happening.
Never heard that comparison before, but why not? It's as good as any, and more interesting and amusing than most. I imagine him trying to listen and respond to all the prayers flying his way. Traffic cop is a good analogy. Maybe juggler, too.
Love it Max. Very clever. I had a giggle at the image.
