"On His Blindness" (a parody/John Milton)

*On His Blindness*

When I consider the bulb burnt out I cannot see it
Ev'ry night is a struggle in the room with a view
And, my only talent is the nakedness I hide,
Scorning me, in it's youthfulness unseen; an
Unspent coil, a snake, to serve my Maker,
far from the Garden wall...There's no accounting
for it...

...Lest he return chilled.

Why is God a day laborer,
and all Darkness on Sunday?
I fondly light, no incandescent bulb
Is Bright!

It's okay, I'll pay the bill,
on the 'morrow.
He'd made me strong to Work

And, if I can find my Best Clothes
In The Darkness,
I shall stand and serve forever
in a candle-lit restaurant.

~Lil Bit~ This post was my Answer (at Yahoo Answers)..A kid had to write a parody of Milton's, "On Blindness," and this is what I came up with. (Wonder what his Class & Teacher will make of it!:)

~Hey! AV~Welcome. You have a pretty cool blog(s) yourself.
