I imagine God has one Hell of a sense of humor,
For which I am eternally grateful!
How else to explain why we are still here,
Despite the efforts of some to blow up our world?
Humans have a real gift
For making good things ungood.
Soap Opera/comedy/ drama:
A cast of billions upon billions of folks,
Production costs continually escalating,
Too many directors, Not enough cast and crew.
It’s a bad sign when the agents leave town!
Word is that God, the Devil and the lost souls
From Purgatory walked out together and
The eventual happened…
Earth lost its celestial/interplanetary appeal.
See what happens when goodwill is not equally distributed?
