God in all his wisdom

engineered the earth and sky
and then a host of people
who would sit and wonder why
that gravity should bind them
when in heaven they should fly
and all desired to get there
it became the battle cry
but how could they achieve it
would they simply have to die ?
 
perhaps its best to plant yourself
and life to never lose
how can the earth embrace your feet
if you are wearing shoes ?
 
God in all his wisdom
called his precious people blessed
but mired inside their hopelessness
they only grew more stressed
entrapped in chains of mortal flesh
who wouldn't be depressed ?
created in God's image ?
we should be more finely dressed
impossible equation
many wise men have expressed
 
but gaze into the heavens
do not cast your eyes below
how can the angels kiss your pate
if you've donned a chapeau ?
