God's Comic

"so there he was on a water bed
drinking a cola of a mystery brand
reading an airport novelette
listening to Andrew Lloyd Weber's "Requiem"
He said, before it had really begun,
"I prefer the one about my son"
"I've been wading through all this unbelievable junk
and wondering if I should have given the world to the monkeys"

-Elvis Costello

So, what do you think? Is God the common man? Should he have given the world to the monkeys? Is Elvis Costello angry and bitter for good reason? Or does he need to sip on some generic soda pop and sit back down?
