    This morning
    All He wanted was His cigarette and His coffee
    Instant
    Black
    No sugar, no cream, no texture and no variety
    Just this bitter cup that never passes from before Him
    The story of His life
    His agony
    His passion
    His death
    And this morning, His resurrection; His faithful fulfilment of His existential obligation to keep rising like the Son, day after day

    God woke up
    Not particularly caring
    to dispense Agape love to the squirming, clamoring masses of
    smelly
    diseased
    selfish
    deformed creatures
    that bore His image and likeness
    stuck on the blue, soot-blackened planet spinning through the cold void of space

    This morning
    All He wanted was peace
    Instead, it started, as every other morning:
    The unceasing hell of endless prayers rose to His ears
    The faces of the devout and the hypocritical contorted in sincerity before Him

    The smell of incense choked His lungs
    And He took another sip of His hateful coffee.

    What if He just reached over
    Grabbed the sun between his thumb and index finger
    And pinched it out of its miserable brightness?
    What if he reached down,
    grabbed the edge of the ocean
    and tilted it, pouring the whole thing to hell
    Extinguishing the flames, to the demons' surprise
    watching as smoke filled the heavens
    angels ceasing to worship
    Humans throwing dust and ashes over their sackcloths
    And stars vanishing from the sky

    He would have done that
    But He just didn't have the energy

    This morning, God woke up
    He just didn't give a damn anymore

    God needs to get over it. It's a bad job market.

    It is a refreshing poem though. My favorite is "blue, soot-blackened planet spinning through the cold void of space." some of the lyrics are amazingly poet and philosophical.

    It's a nice image of an apathetic God.
