GOD AND ME BECAME FACEBOOK FRIENDS
God and me chewed the fat on Facebook,
His bio section awesome,
His newsfeed, an assortment of the unwritten and spoken,
His profile picture was a call to action, not his mug
God is one of us, and has a device
like some of us, says “Hello” like me too
He said I secrete high humour.
Will you grant my requests?
I typed to God.
I’ve got a bucket list of them.
God laughed out loud.
I’ll have to hear it first, right?
Awe, will God be furious?
I typed away at my 5 inch:
Can I see God’s face?
God showed me his face.
Hails from somewhere in Africa.
I said: Thank you God.
God said: Welcome and Good night.
