S(he) Sees the World

She praised God for all the good
and cursed the Devil for all the bad—
seeing everything that happened
through the prism of intervention
by an unseen entity,
for it was the only way
she could make sense of the world.

He praised no one and cursed nothing,
seeing everything that happened
as the result of cosmic chaos—
set in motion by a God who had left
Earth’s inhabitants to their own devices,
for it was the only way
he could make sense of the world.
