The Second Week

On the 8th day God created cancer
So that we might know the pain of loss and sick decay

On the 9th day God created cot-death
With spite he wanted us to share the sorrow of a child unfairly taken

On the 10th day
– His cruelest joke –
God created love and doomed us

On day 11 God departed
His experiment complete
His interest waning
His fun over

And the world still spins on its axis
