The Cagey God

By Ruth Hurmance Green

“There is no god but Allah
And Mahomet is his prophet.”

“The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
This no one ought to scoff at.”

“Our Father who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name.
He’s ours, our very three-in-one.
We made a counter-claim.”

No one can solve the mystery
Of whom this god does favor;
So Muslim, Jew, and Christian wait.
(In faith they seldom waver.)

Honor, worship, praise, and gold
They lavish on their master.
If you were god, would you reveal
Your preference any faster?
