My father once read an Indian story
About the origin of the world. It began:
"In the beginning, God was walking with his dog."
Nothing about creating the dog, you'll notice;
The dog is just there. My father felt this was right
Why shouldn't God have always had a dog?
Me, I suspect the dog may have come first
And God turned up to keep it company.
Until then, He had been of two minds about existing
But with a dog around He could be sure someone
Would love Him, even when he loosed hurricanes
Or even on the day He invented cholera.
