473. When he left Heaven

When he left Heaven,
The owner of Heaven
Soulfully cried with gratitude,
Hoping that he would soon return.

When he touched earth,
The owner of earth
Vehemently protested his arrival.
Furious, Mother Earth said to Father Heaven:
“Stop dropping your garbage on me.”

Trembling, Father Heaven replied:
“O my better half, forgive me,
This will be absolutely
My last torture,
My greatest relief.”
