The Original Godmother
Consider the rose: His most aesthetic creation.
More delicate then the sweetest dream
and redder than rubies.
Softer than an April rain, it sends
the olfactory sense into celestial orbit.
Poets pound their brain just to describe the rose.
God invents it. He is excited.
He proudly runs home to Godette
finally convinced that this creation business
is a worthwhile occupation.
“It needs thorns,” She declares.
“But Godette, thorns are dangerous
and this rose is so beautiful,” He protests.
“Yes, my dear, and anything that beautiful needs its own protection.”
Pythagoras was the second man to learn of the Superior Force.
