The news had become unbearable
especially for God.
He was worn down by it.
Nothing was sacred any more.
The angels said He had no one to blame
but Himself -- He took things too personally.
God removed His glasses,
rubbed His temples reflexively.
Was this how He had imagined the world would be
or had the world surprised Him?
He worried about how others perceived him
then realized perhaps
He should accept Himself instead
(with all His quirks)
and damn those who don’t.
