God's not always mean (#14c)

Original Text: 

Wendy Agnew, "#14c,"The Lillian Lectures (Toronto: Coach House Books, 1998).

1God's not always mean
2He saves the sparrows
3but crows are too big and noisy
4God only likes lambs and kittens and donkeys
5--anything weak or stupid--
6cause He's not too bright Hisself
7otherwise why would He hang out
8with a bunch of angels
9in a land where
10there's nothing but air
