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."
