My Lord Supreme,

What do You do

When I demand something from You

And expect something from You

And really need something from You?

“My child,

When you demand, I immediately fall asleep

And start snoring.

“When you expect, I quickly wake up

And start singing.

“When you need, I sprint toward you

Like your Sudhahota Carl Lewis,

The world’s fastest sprinter,

And smilingly reach you

And affectionately give you what you need.”
