Is God Proving A Point? - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

is god proving a point
or giving himself away
to realm beyond realm?

the trees well they survive
on only light, air, water and
soil and live to be the longest

i heard that angels survive
on fire and in some realms
old age is unheard of

and they are probably true

plants which mostly survive
on air, water and soil give away
the best of nature's beauty -
flowers for every of our seasons
and food to feed the world

the tortoise well he too
survives on a vegetarian
diet - too slow to catch others
- and lives to at least a few hundred years old

but we humans who devour more than
half of the world's assets and and
causing many to be extinct
live a mere five score if lucky.
