God slams back

So I’ve to sort out all the worlds problems and strife, Is it not enough that I created you and let you think, Now you can’t even do that for yourselves, It’s all what would god want, why does god let this happen. Well let me ask you this, why have you killed in my name, Plundered just the same, Banished the sick and lame, Then say I’m to blame, You worship me You hate me You curse me You serve me All in your own way. Why don’t I end disease grief pain poverty needs, I hear and see all your plea’s I despair but cannot accede. Can only happen this way, there is no script, I may influence your day don’t intervene, I pray Might give you a nudge, a peep a clue, out of the blue, the other guy has his tricks too. I’ve got enough on my plate, a universe to keep in place, Who’s watching my back, I can’t always be awake, must keep heaven ready, for souls you burnt at the stake give me a break. It’s your planet I want you to inhabit, then you have doubt what life’s about, it’s ok so do I, But we must see it out. It’s not perfect was never meant to be You need a fall guy, or a shoulder, thats me, you can also choose to ignore. Live it your way I pity you I love you I made you I serve you in my own way. A man wrote this slam you say Impersonating god is not ok, well listen to yourselves before you slay And yes this guy does pray in his own casuistry way Could I write this any other way of course I’m a hypocrite, One shaped by dismay By David Kavanagh.

Why on earth David If indeed God gave us a brain would he not intend or fully expect us to use it. I thought the only unexplained or pointless organ in the body is the appendix. Like your line says Its your planet

I think that’s the point Christopher it’s all about our evolving intelligence it’s a hypothetical situation where I’m trying to make an alternative case for god by leaving us to our own devices and not intervening we actually learn and grow, but in the meantime when things go wrong we use him as a scapegoat, in which I have depending on how bad things get in life hence the hypocrisy of counting my blessings and cursing my luck I’m agnostic by nature which basically means I cannot discount a god, cheers David
