When God laughs
A Poem by Coyote Poetry
I read Jack London book today “When God laughs.” It is a amazing book.
I say?-drenched through with holiness as your own air here is with the perfume of flowers.
Well. they married. They played a hand with the gods-“
Their love for each other was a great love. Their granaries were overflowing with plenitude: yet they wanted to keep the sharp famine-edge of their love undulled.
to stay at Love’s topmost peak.”
When God laugh
Man believes he had power over all.
Can control the sun, the river and the wind.
I like the trickery of the Gods.
Allow men to stand and shout how powerful and strong he is.
I believe the Gods are laughing.
Poor foolish man control nothing.
We are blinded by our greed and hate.
Old wisdom need to be held true.
We must pray and seek peace with the Gods.
The Gods do not lose.
Just observers of man’s mishaps and steady fall to foolishness.
