Invisible hand


Let me tell you my dear friend
About my invisible hand

I don't claim that the hand is mine
I presume that its source is divine

It brought me from dead when I was seven
It saved me from a child molester at the age 11

It didn't let me drown a couple of times
It prevented several very serious crimes

When I acted cruel, when I acted wrong
It brought the punishment swift and strong

I am very grateful that the hand exists
But in religious matters, I am atheist

So, let's set the record straight
If there is providence, if there is fate

There must be a reason I became poet
Married my wife and wrote this sonnet.
