â€œIt is doneâ€, God said,
â€œItâ€™s time to take a rest.â€
The angels marveled at the sun and stars,
Jesus liked the Earth the best.
Godâ€™s workshop was a jumble,
And Gabriel started to clean.
He found a pile of extra parts,
And caused some kind of scene.
â€œYou know I canâ€™t stand waste, Lord.
â€œYouâ€™ve got to use these bits,â€
â€œCanâ€™t be done,â€ God told him.
â€œNothing left there fits.â€
â€œYouâ€™re the Lord!â€ Said Gabriel,
â€œAinâ€™t nothing you canâ€™t do.â€
So God jammed the bits together,
And made the platypus and you.

I shared this previously, but it seemed the perfect poem for April Fool’s Day. This is National Poetry month and I will attempt to post a poem a day — some of them might even be new!
