THE GOD’S-EYE VIEW
If there’s a God, then what’s the God’s-Eye view
Of all that’s happening on Earth today?
And what are we to think of a God who
Creates a world like this then turns away?
For so it seems as time runs its long course,
Which history records and comprehends
In terms of competition, brutal wars,
On which Earth’s evolution all depends.
From God’s view is this but a spectacle
Made to amuse, as dramas do for us,
To keep omniscience from growing dull,
And will our story be forever thus?
Or is it all a tragicomedy
That in despite of woes ends happily?
