This God-forsaken World by Connaire Kensit,

This God-forsaken World            

God made the world, so priests have said,

In six days flat, then went to bed.
But those who've looked say space exploded

Cooking up worlds, which time eroded.

Claim theologians who choose                  

To reconcile conflicting views:

“God laid the charge and lit the fuse!

The great Big Bang so made Him wince,

God fled.  And no one's seen Him since.”
