101. Death-dance

I met God in Heaven.
He asked me
How I was.

I met man on earth.
He wanted me to tell
How he was.

I met Satan in hell.
He told me that he had
Adopted a new course of life:
He prays to God every day,
He meditates on God every day,
He even loves God every day.

I met myself in the doubt-tornado
Of my mind, lost all:
Death-dance within, without.
