Mikel K poetry


If God is responsible for 
our happiness, then he
or she or it must then be
responsible for our depressions
our insanity our wars our prisons
our mental institutions, for rape
and child molestation. If God 
puts a smile on our face, rewards
us for praying, then he or she or it
must also be responsible for our
frown, for us wanting to kill somebody
who has done nothing to us. 
NO, says my lover, God is not
responsible for our happiness.
I said if.
