God Came To Visit

Yesterday

God came to visit

My heart-home.

Alas, I missed Him.

I was out playing

With my all-challenging bull.

Today

Again God has come to visit

My heart-home.

Alas,

I am missing Him again.

I am already out feeding

My all-ignorance-horse.

Alas, alas!

But tomorrow

If God comes to visit

My heart-home,

He will definitely find me.

And I shall immediately compensate

By devotedly offering Him

My ignorance-devouring lion.
