FUNNY HOW...

This is a poem sent by one of our readers in response to our feature article "the Inevitable collapse of Calumny" in the last issue of H2H. To read that article again, click here.

Funny how a donation looks so big when you give it to the temple
but the same amount seems so small when you use it for shopping

Funny how long it takes to serve God for an hour
but how quickly a team plays 60 minutes of sport

Funny how long a couple of hours spent at temple are
but how short they are when watching a movie

Funny how we can’t think of anything to say when we pray
but have no difficulty thinking of things to talk about to a friend

Funny how we get thrilled when a match goes into extra innings
but we complain when a spiritual talk is longer than the regular time

Funny how hard it is to read a chapter in the scriptures
but how easy is to read 100 pages of a best selling novel

Funny how people want to get a front seat at any game or concert
but scramble to get a back seat at the bhajan centre

Funny how we need 2 weeks advance notice to fit a seva event into our schedule - but can adjust our schedule for other events
at the last moment.

Funny how hard it is for people to learn a prayer well enough to teach others - but how simple it is to understand and repeat gossip.

Funny how we believe what the newspapers say
but question what Swami says

Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven
but do not want to believe, or think, or say, or do anything for God.
