In the old days, it seems from all reports,
That Gods of all faiths performed many, many miracles
THEY would save believers from the jaws of death
THEY would heal lepers and give sight to the blind
THEY would grant riches and victory to the righteous
And take the time to wipe the tears of widows and orphans
But it seems THEY are slipping up badly these days
I can see no miracles around me
In fact, THEY are performing ‘Below Expectation’ (a term from my appraisal process!)
Even in their core function
Which is to reward the good and punish the bad
Well, when you think about it
I can find some excuses for THEM
How do you expect THEM to cope
With the kind of rise in population
The world has seen from the good old days?
So many billions of souls
Calling out to them for
Miracles big and small
Agreed THEY are Gods
But even THEY, surely
Must be stressed and over-worked
Poverty, hunger, AIDS
Terrorist attacks, the War on Terror
Stock market booms and busts
Dictators and trolls
Floods, droughts, tsunamis
Child trafficking, porn sites
Violence against women
In between sorting out all this
Do you seriously expect THEM
To make the time
For a personal miracle for you?

A humorous satire on Gods ….
The Gods must be watching Meena😊
Hahaa.. watching and wondering – How do I make her ‘believe’ about my presence 😀😀
Nice one the Meena!

Ultimately, everything boils down to belief and faith, isn’t it! Whether the good God above will come to our rescue or find time to pull us out of whatever clutches we are in, is something no one has a proof. But that just one belief that He has good team to support and update him and nothing is impossible for Him is good enough reason to BELIEVE that He has time, attention and energy to take care of all 😀!
