Wiser / by Shaun Fauntleroy

there was a mouse in my apartment

i said, "Lord, Lord!
this is a brand new apartment,
what is a mouse doing in here?!"
and the Lord said,
"Shaun, I created all things,
but i don't tell them where to go.
The mouse, he can go where he wants."
i said, "Amen!"
it was just like the book of Job.
sans counselors.
