Is Galoofah Greater Than God?
by George Fish

Is Galoofah
greater than God?
The answer is
and direct.
So let’s see.
First, we realize—
even at his/her/its
very, very worst,
is still,
always and forever,
a Poofah.
And that’s wonderful.
God, on the other hand—
even at his/her/its
very, very best,
is yet,
always and forever,
merely a Wod.
And that’s
not very good
at all!
So there,
my Jod!
