Devinity - Poem by Oskar Hansen
Once I saw our blue planets from above yet I will not give you the impression of being
a famous astronaut. As I said the planet was blue like a child´s toy and looked lovely in
the nothingness of the galaxy. It looked small and vulnerable, peaceful too, and
from the great high it seems unbelievable that any wars should be fought there Ok.
So I had been invited for tea with god and he helped with the transport.
On scones made of soft afternoon sunlight, he said he could not understand what all
the fuzz was about and he asked me to read some poems to better understand humanity.
There were many seraphs present Hitler, Stalin and an assortment of lesser dictators in
their life time had much to answer for, but god had forgiven them.
After reading my poems to harp music god asked me what to do, and I said use your power
now because good people are beginning to doubt your existence, we have intellectuals who
writes bad things about you. Meeting over, god gave me a plate of cream cakes made of
cumulus- which I´m eating right now- he promised to do something radical that would make
us sit up and listed, I´m still waiting.
