I Ran My Car Into God Today Poem by Roshni D'Souza

I Ran My Car Into God Today

Rating: 5.0

I ran my car into God today;
I thought I had the right of way.
He says He’s suing after all;
Can you believe the Almighty gall.
“What happened to your spiel on Love? ”
“Not right now, Ms. Gilles Villeneuve!
I’ve been trying to get your whole attention;
I’m tired of your so-called good intention! ”
But I have things to do, a schedule to keep;
That Sunday check, it is not cheap!
Clients, family, even a yard,
And a shoddy attempt to be a bard.
But He tells me He’s feeling quite neglected;
Always the last one to be selected.
So I’m thinking “a little TLC”
And, just maybe, I could go scott-free.
I suggest coffee in a couple of days.
“I’m giving up caffeine! ”, so He says.
“So, what are my options? ” I almost yell.
“I thought you’d never ask to tell.
Take Me with you. I’ll ride along! ”
“A ride along? Now that's just wrong!
Will You pick the radio stations too? ”
“Is that too much to ask of you? ”
I threatened I would write about this…
“Go ahead! Won’t be your first hit-and-miss! ”
“Alright! Alright! Just come along,
But don’t say much and don’t sing that song! ”
So in order to prevent litigation,
I’m taking Him along…even on vacation!

Roahni, I LOVE this! It is so so creative and well rhymed and well thought out. You were too harsh on yourself in the email you sent. This is amazing! It was entertaining and said exactly what you wanted it to convey. My congratulations on a job well done! Susan

lol I loved this too Roshni! lol If I ran into my god, I'd take him along for the ride too. Never to allow his disembarking sensational praying to leave my side of the road, which by the way, is opposite to yours. Smiling at you Tai
