On Behalf

May I speak on God’s behalf?

Don’t laugh.

Is flippancy a part of me?

Don’t rush to agree.

God is said to be truth, therefore true.

This is two poems at once.

Partly about God and about me in part.

God, do I break your heart?

Don’t answer, you might give me a fright.

I believe in you at night.

Does God believe in me?

I strain his credulity.

I’m running out of page, some other time.

I’ll go out while the weather’s fine.

Be Mine

Be mine, inspirer of all things.

May inspiration come as Saturn’s rings.

May I inspire and inspired be.

Oh inspiration come to me.

When thou art mine oh I am thine.

Forever glass of wine.

May I bring solace and inspire.

Forever ever climbing higher.

As a family, around a fire.

May I bring happiness and love.

Oh peace, where art thou, whitest dove.

Rest on my shoulder, sing your song.

With you I belong.

May I make right from wrong.

This is my prayer, this my plea.

May I forever walk with thee.

This my poem, let it be.

How great thou art, how little me.

I walk in humility.

Bubble

God doesn’t believe in God, is that the trouble?

Did you go broke in the last bubble?

Some people say there is no Hell, how do they know?

Because the Devil told them so.

They believe in nothing they can’t see.

Is that like you and me?

A person who knows everything is God, of course.

A pantomime horse.

You meet them everywhere, common as air.

If you are God then I am snoring, because you’re boring.

Maybe it doesn’t suit you to believe.

Who’s fooling who, goodbye, I take my leave.

Christ Talks

Passerby: Hi Christ. Someone said you are the son of God. What are you doing here?

Christ: I’m flogging bibles.

Passerby: They haven’t been written yet. Aren’t you being a bit premature?

Christ: A bit previous. A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do.

Passerby: I’ll put my name down for one.

Christ: Sign here. A first edition is a good investment. You could flog it at Sotheby’s.

Passerby: If I’m around that long. Is it readable?

Christ: It took ten years to write and would probably take the same amount of time to read.

Passerby: That’s very funny.

Christ: Not if you wrote the book.

Passerby: It will give people something to swear on and at and throw at people, anyway.

Christ: A best seller.

Passerby: And I thought you were just a waste of space.

Christ: Wait for the Hollywood epic.

Passerby: You’ve seen the film, now read the book.

Christ: Dance to the musical.

Passerby: You are a man before your time.

Christ: A man out of time.

Passerby: Whatever that means.

Christ: Gutenberg, thou should’st be living at this hour.

Passerby: I’ll wait for the audio version.

Christ: That’s me. Born before TV.

Passerby: If you had an air to that you could sing it.

Christ: I’ll be on my way.

Passerby: Mine too.

Christ: It’s a rocky road.

Passerby: You can say that again.

Christ: And again and again and again.

Passerby: Where does this road lead?

Christ: Where indeed.

Passerby: You’re a bit of a poet.

Christ: Don’t I know it.

Passerby: Sayonara, Japanese for goodbye.

Christ: Au revoir, until we meet again.

(Both figures depart. The End.)

Knowall

Is God a knowall or does he exist at all?

No one likes a knowall, he shoves facts in your face.

He knows better he puts you down he is a disgrace.

God, on the other hand, is a mystery man.

Find out for yourself, that’s his plan.

He is self effacing to a fault.

Someday I may break into his vault.
