786. Three talkers

You speak.
You speak too much,
Too long,
Your contribution is fruitless.

He speaks.
He speaks too little,
Too briefly,
His contribution is senseless.

I speak.
My speech is all worthless,
All useless.

God does not speak.
He spontaneously acts,
He constantly becomes,
He eternally is.
