I do not understand you
and your petty god 
with his petty anger
punishing us for the sin 
of being human.

what does such a god want
of his weak creations
building up and tearing down
in childlike petulance
sweeping the board clear.

what are humans
to an omnipotent being
cockroaches startled
in the light seeking safety
from the treading foot
