Creation is easy.
I say “let there be light”
And the screen flashes on.
I say “let the land produce living creatures”
And the chicken tikka arrives in under 20 minutes.
I say “let the crude in the world be gathered to one pump”
And it’s drawn to my tank through a thousand mile straw.

Creation is easy
When you’ve got dollars
And I see that it is good.

And while I rest, I wonder —
Do the penniless I create
in the wake of my own image
worship me?

Don’t. Stop.
Creation is easy.
