    COSMIC TOOLBOX

    The old tools we have been using
    these thousands of years
    are out of date: there surely must be
    new ones to find, to put to use!

    God: father, mother, creator, lover,
    provided man with a universal toolbox
    full of practical, wonderful tools
    with which to create and evolve;
    to build a universe of wonders and delights
    for God and friends to contemplate and enjoy.
    Sadly, man saw only the top layer:
    a few religious books, a scattering of 'isms',
    a few incomplete philosophies,
    grabbed at by power-hungry fools
    declaring themselves god-chosen rulers.

    From these they interpreted a god of war
    of greed and blood, of petty thoughts
    a god, in short, so afraid of man
    he wilfully plunged an entire world
    under a watery flood, knowing full well
    man's woes would but continue and grow
    regardless of punishment meted out!

    Ah, what are these wonderful things
    man failed to find in the toolbox?
    They'er called love, joy, peace, patience,
    kindness, goodness, faithfulness and yes,
    even gentleness and tenderness... towards all things.
    All things, we now should understand,
    are native of the spirit soul of God:
    rock, salamander, tree or man, we all are one!
