The Potter & the Clay

The potter
Molded the clay
But it was second-hand

Made a beautiful vase
And sent it to this forsaken place

For fourteen years
It held the prettiest
Of bouquets

Now, cracked and chipping
It leaks rancid water-
God doesn't live here anymore
And wilted petals
Wither in the heat
