The circus

I enjoy watching the circus

Munching popcorn

That I have made.

There she is sulking

Cos her brother displaced her

From her mother’s lap.

I am rolling on the floor

Watching him fret

Over the fluff

He has given up sex,

She has given up food,

Some are doing charity

And look at those

Killing each other,

All trying to suck upto me.

God watched.

She walked out with her children one day in desperation. She placed everything in the hands of God.

God watched.

She started her own business bravely. She […]

God Remained

It was another endless moment in Time. God was bored.

He did what He often did.

He erased His memory. And was born to a starving, devout African mother with AIDS recently widowed with two children in a country with war between tribes. It would be an engrossing experience. For some time.

God was infinite. God remained.

It […]

She went against all that she was supposed to do as per her religion. She felt that following rituals was not a way to be nearer to God.

God was not bothered.

He believed that people who suffered did […]
