Some minor character in a TV Sunday play
was asked to pick a day, (just one mind you)
that he would wish to live through once again.
And, do you know what?
Even though he seemed quite sane
he could not think of one.
Yet, don’t think this odd,
for even God, (speaking on a late night show)
was slow to answer.
And when He did, admitted that the question
had outwitted even Him.
“The past’s been grim.” He said.
Adding, that the question was an unfair test.
But that, if pressed, He guessed
the best was still to come.
