God And The World - Poem by Max Reif

God is a traffic cop
conducting a mad symphony
in the busiest intersection,
wildly tooting his whistle
and gleefully waving his arms
at all manner of vehicles rushing by—
and the crazier the driver, the better!

    Never heard that comparison before, but why not? It's as good as any, and more interesting and amusing than most. I imagine him trying to listen and respond to all the prayers flying his way. Traffic cop is a good analogy. Maybe juggler, too. (Report) Reply
