Poem by James Cavanaugh – I Played God Today

“I played God today
And it was fun!
I made animals that men had never seen
So they would stop and scratch their heads
Instead of scowling.
I made words that men had never heard
So they would stop and stare at me
Instead of running.
And I made love that laughed
So men would giggle like children
Instead of sighing.
Tomorrow, perhaps, I won’t be God
And you will know it
Because you won’t see any three-headed cats
Or bushes with bells on…
I wish I could always play God
So that lonely men could laugh!”
James Kavanaugh, There Are Men Too Gentle to Live Among Wolves
