395. His invitations

To cheer his divine birth
He invited the cosmic gods.
The gods simply flew down
To the earth to cheer him, love him, embrace him.

To mourn his human death
He invited his earthly comrades, earthly devotees, earthly adorers.
Some came late,
Some came not at all,
Some just sneered
At his audacious invitation.
