Breakfast With God (the other day)
A Story Poem by Jim Nasium

I went to breakfast with God the other day
I guess we had a good time together
it was a warm day, windy and gray
but we paid no attention to weather
we sat in a booth, our waitress was Ruth
we ordered eggs over easy and home fries
it was easy to see He felt sorry for me
He could see the sadness in my eyes...


"Take my yoke" He said to me
another of His many pranks
but since I'm watching my cholesterol
I smiled and said "no thanks
I can not take another thing
feel like I'm going to snap
every day it just gets worse
I'm so tired of the crap"

and then...

"Let my shaft comfort you"
He said with a smile on his face
I told him "I don't go that way"
and that I thought it was a disgrace
then asked Him why He torments me
and exactly why is my life so unfair
He looked at me with soulful eyes
as if He had something He wanted to share

but then...

"I am the Sheppard, you are a sheep"
He said with frightening grin
I replied, "if that were true I'm telling you
there's no way I would ever win
I've got to do things my own way
and have to do them at my own pace"
when we finally stopped eating and talking
there was disappointment all over His face

 so then...

The waitress brought the check to us
wished us both a very nice day
and as He sat there looking at me
I couldn't think of a thing to say
"you think this is a joke, but every word I spoke
is true because it is My will
now don't be a jerk" He said with a smirk
"go ahead and pay the bill" ...
