Adam Speaks to God
by Bored in Vernal
I asked God if it was okay to bake eclairs,
And he nodded his head as he
Brushed some crumbs from his beard.
I asked God if a guy could sing opera.
He said he didn’t really
Think it was too weird.
But God, I said (because sometimes I have to ask twice),
What if I paint my fingernails?
Is that too queer?
Or hold hands with Steve?
Where everyone can see
(His answer I feared).
But God said, dude (he calls me that, sometimes),
As we sat down in time for Glee,
Just watch the show
(and bring me a beer).
