Divine Give and Take.

On the scales of the divine
They measure yours and mine
Carefully balance water and wine.
Separate the sheep from swine.

And then, when work is done, for fun: 
They distribute gifts 

Skill and craft, winning ways. 
Various talents to fill our days
Words to glorify our love with praise
Sporting prowess to amaze.
i could go on for days and days.

But I will just say, various other treasures for which the extract a heavy price

The writer gets dyslexia
The gourmet gets dyspepsia
The beauty queen anorexia
The intellectual gets apraxia.

Funny ha-ha. But they have more to give

Shall I refrain?
The father who inflicts pain
The mother hooked on cocaine
The crack head sister gone insane
I could go on and on but it would be inane.

Did I mention: Hurricane. To much rain on the flood plain that can’t drain away. 

I’m exhausted with it all

So I’ve spoken to the top brass, with out being crass, i said I’d pass, 

Take our gifts I said and shove them up your…….I’ll get my coat so………
