God’s Wheel

God’s Wheel

GOD says to me with a kind
Of smile, “Hey how would you like
To be God awhile And steer the world?”
“Okay,” says I, “I’ll give it a try.

Where do I set?
How much do I get?
What time is lunch?
When can I quit?”

“Gimme back that wheel,” says GOD.
“I don’t think you’re quite ready YET.”

Poem God’s Wheel - Shel Silverstein
