The Real Story of Creation

In the beginning, God created man.
Man promptly sat down to a breakfast
of eggs and bacon.
(coffee was not created until the day of rest.)
God looked at what had been done and said,
"This is good."
(God's no poet.)
God then turned to man and said,
"You are to be the protector of all things."
but man had not heard her,
because he was late for work,
and had rushed of without his hat.
