Believe at Odds
A theist and atheist were
Next door neighbors who disagreed.
The theist believed God was sure,
And would provide for a real need.
The theist needed groceries,
And prayed loud, which was overheard
By the atheist, who did seize
The chance to prove God was absurd.
Groceries, the atheist bought,
Giving them all to the theist,
Saying that God provided not.
The theist said God does exist,
'I got groceries by God's will.'
'God made the devil pay the bill.'
