WALKABOUTSVERSE 81 OF 230

Poem 81 of 230:  A PRAYER FOR CHANGE

There must be a god -
    A god I’ve met not;
But, if I met god,
    I’d say, “Change the plot.”

Too much poverty/
Inequality;
Too much selfishness/
Competitiveness.

There must be a god -
    A god I’ve seen not;
But prophets of God
    Bore a Leftist plot.

This comes to the fore
In parts of Acts Four,
With sharing of wealth/
Care beyond thyself.

There must be a god -
    A god I’ve met not;
But some who’ve “found” God
    Have twisted the plot.

To the Left they pray -
That’s God, prophets say;
But then they vote Right -
Improves their own plight?

There must be a god -
    A god I’ve seen not;
But I pray for god
    To help change the plot.
