How long is forty days? Only a fool
keeps himself awake at night over angels
on a pinhead. Is God great enough
to make a rock that He can't move?
I count myself lucky to have wise friends
who answer my impossible questions
when I ask them, and they tell me
that it's only human not to know.
What happens when you die? Is there a God?
How do spiders know the way to spin a web?
And despite the wise advice from my friends,
it keeps me awake at night, even though
it's only human not to know.
