UNTITLED

Jose Garcia Villa

God said, "I made a man
Out of clay-
But so bright he, he spun
Himself to brightest Day

Till he was all shining gold
And oh,
He was handsome to behold!
But in his hands held he a bow

Aimed at me who created
Him.  And I said,
'Wouldst murder me
Who am thy Fountainhead!'

Then spoke he the man of gold:
'I will not
Murder thee!  I do but
Measure thee.  Hold

Thy peace.'  And this I did.
But I was curious
Of this so regal head.

'Give thy name!'- 'Sir! Genius.'"
