490. He

He is so indecisive.
He has been meditating
For thirty-three long years;
But still he has not given himself
A spiritual name.

He is so possessive.
He wants to know the names of his
Spiritual great-grandchildren
Who are still sleeping in Heaven.

He is so obsessive.
He wants world-perfection
This very moment.
He feels his own perfection
Can delay;
No harm,
His big heart can wait
And sleep in Eternity’s Life.

He is so progressive.
He asks God
To beg him to create
A new world, a world infinitely better
Than God’s own world.
