If God felt like getting absolution
that’s one drawback to his position
that the priest would not know how to cope
with the very notion

Hello,I’m God,Father.
Oh,you’re with the Mafia,then
I am with everyone
That’s noble.Any sins
I made a grave error.
You don’t have to worry.We all do it.
But I’m God!
If you say so.
I made a man from earth.Then I made a woman.
That’s very wise under the Equal Opportunites Legislation
Then they bred.
Well,surely no one blames you?
I do.
Are you unwell?Shall I call an ambulance?
What for?
To take you to the Asylum.
So you think I’m an asylum seeker?
Well,you don’t look British!
It’s enough to drive me mad.
You are mad.
How come?
You think you are God
I am God.
Do you have any identity card?
That’s rich!who’d give me one?The Pope?
Well,they say,see Rome and die.
I never die.I’m immortal
Well,I absolve you and your penance is to forget yourself
Everything is on fire
Lord have mercy.
I’m thinking about it.
Be English!
English… what a joke!I am black.
So am I!
Black And British.. or Black and Foreign
Is God a Foreigner?

Being careful one loses one’s balance.

Being careful one
loses one’s balance,
Not to please.
Carefully loses.
Not one’s balance?
Not being careful loses one’s balance.
Please not!
Being balanced
One loses care.
Pleasing care,
Loses one’s balance.
No pleasing care!
Balance losing full up tonight.
Full of balance
One loses cares.
Thank you.
Balance please!
Care is not losing.
I don’t want to lose you.
Please balance your cares.

Birds can see God

English: Low Sun at Palace Pier, Brighton About an hour or so before sun set the birds swarm the pier, the sea gulls at about an hour before sunset and half an hour later the starlings perform an amazing ritual of synchronised flying around the pier. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)


By the lake a huge flock of pigeons rose from the trees and circled in precise and moving geometry whilst simultaneously many sea gulls which had been floating on the windblown water arose and formed concentric whirling music in the sky.We stood still on the grass in the deep silence, absorbing the colors,shapes and murmurings.Just a normal day in the country park but I am sure of one thing:

Birds can see God

No boasts to flog today,I leer.

Keep off the lass
Keep off the spawn.
Do not wash the cat whilst wearing.
Please talk in single style
Catholic must remain waste until ferried and done for.
Do not iron yourself whilst swearing.
Please wean yourself off the grass.
Do not bleat and talk simultaneously.
Flocks in pastures keep back sliding
Pests in the Lord.
Do not gnash your wreaths whilst smoking.
Please cut out the spire if needful,
Please bait graciously.
No balking on the Sabbath
No needles are told here
Non feet eaters please tell the most

The larger part is silence

Language can only deal meaningfully with a special, restricted segment of reality. The rest, and it is presumably the much larger part, is silence.”
