My First Attempt At Poetry

With a nod to Stephen Crane.

· Poetry,Philosophy

This little poem came to me one day, and at first I was certain that I'd seen it somewhere already. Being a riff on Stephen Crane's poem A Man Said To The Universe, I just assumed that someone else had flipped it on its end before, but a google search produced no matches, so I guess it is mine after all. My first attempt at bringing it to someone's notice was an almost mind–alteringly ridiculous experience, so hopefully it finds a more attentive audience here.

God said to a man:

“I have a sense of obligation!"

“However,” replied the man,

“This has not created in me

“A belief that you exist.”
