Lament of a Sinner
By: Kevin Smith
 
If God should want, a flower,
I know he’d not choose me.
I’m too course and thorny,
A flower I cannot be.
 
If God should want, a cactus,
With me he would abort.
I’m not that hard and prickly,
As a cactus I come up short.
 
If God should want, a puppy,
Once again I wouldn’t fit.
I’m not that cute and cuddly,
As a puppy I wouldn’t sit.
 
If God should want, a sunbeam,
Left out, I’d be again.
I’m not that light and airy,
I can’t float upon the wind.
 
But if God should want, a sinner,
Right here I’d pass the test.
With me he’d pick a winner,
 For that’s what I’ve done best.
