God said, “I made a man”

by Jose Garcia Villa

God said, “I made a man out of clay-

But so bright he, he spun Himself to the brightest Day

Till he was all shining gold, and oh,

He was handsome to behold!

But in his hands held he a bow

Aimed at me who created him.

And said, “Wouldst murder me

Who am thy Fountainhead?”

Then spole he the man of gold:

I will not Murder thee! I do but Measure thee.

Hold Thy peace!”

And this I did, But I was curious of this so regal head.

“Give thy name! – “Sir! Genius.”
