“I”

‘I’

 I built me a house and I said,

“I have created this!

I am something!’

And God smiled.

I took me a wife and I said,

“Now I am complete!

I am something!”

And God sighed.

I built me a business and I said,

“Now I am secure.

I am something!”

And God spoke.

So.

I built me a church and I said,

“See what I have done.

I am something!”

And God wept.
