"Creation Myth" by Hunter Madsen

"Creation Myth"

  
 
Two Questions from Stymean Karlen

                              I
If Man invented God to account for Death,
who invented Man to account for Life?


                             II
I said to God
God, we were not made in your image
You were made in our image
If I did not tell you, you would never know who you are
We call you God
What do you call yourself?
