Silly Poems and Rhymes # 20

( by Shel Silverstein)

“God says to me with kind of a smile,


"Hey how would you like to be God awhile


And steer the world?"


"Okay," says I, "I'll give it a try.


Where do I set?


How much do I get?


What time is lunch?


When can I quit?"


"Gimme back that wheel," says God,


"I don't think you're quite ready yet."
