I'm not Jesus but i know where god works

at the post office
is god.


he is called Dennis
and is more often


than not the only person
serving.


he has a
man slave assistant


who I think is
a touch distrusting
of people


and does not serve
at the counter much ,
preferring


to do tasks that
always seem to


need doing
behind the counter.


he is a busy
busy man


beavering away
for mr.god
Dennis.


mr.god
always takes his time
and knows


all the customers
names straight off


asking how they are.
that's how I know
he must be god.


well that and the fact
that he hands over


my giro money
every two weeks


with no questions asked
and a smile or two.


most would
be grudge me it
and snarl at me.


we always stand
in line serenely


and pretend
we have


all the time
in the world.


I often wonder
what god does


on sundays
and bank holidays ?


probably fishing,
fishing for
lost souls perhaps


like me
like you.


I never ask him
questions


I know he would
not tell me,
just yet.
