gods change

they are static only in the mind

nothing is unchanged for long

as the universe expands

time rushes to keep up

and all things must do likewise

or disappear

if we find those gods that made us

neither they nor we will be the same

odds are

if we are any example

there will be little brotherly love

there will be squabbles and conflict

for we are both creators

and those we create will not grow to be like us

why bother then, you ask

because that mysterious seed has been planted

in all self conscious beings
