A Question Of Prayer - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Some pray to thank God for what they’ve been blessed with
Some pray to atone for those bad things they’ve messed with
Praying with reverence and piety
To their God, their God, their all migh-e-ty

My feelings and thoughts, as I introspect
Prompt me to question, with no disrespect
All religionists for their point of view
Who, in heaven’s name, does God pray to?
