In one of my father's stories
A committee votes that God
Does not exist but still
Listens to prayers, does justice,
Shows mercy.

My grandfather made watches
Which kept perfect time
But set his a few minutes fast
So did my mother; so do I.
An alibi ever-ready:
None of I it was; I wasn't there
But five minutes away.
