...the
Jews
gathered
round Him
and
said to
Him,
'How long
will You
keep us
in suspense?
If You
are the
Christ,
tell us
plainly!'
[John 10:24]
*****************
Time: Right now.
Place: Between
Heaven and Earth.
Characters: The
Regular G-d [LORD]; and
the Author.

"I'm SORRY,
LORD."

[GAZING DOWN
AT EARTH.]
[PATIENT NOD.]

"Sometimes,
you don't always
get what ya..... WANT."

[NODDING.]
"And,
what is
that,
My child?"

"ME!"

[CHUCKLE.]

"I know;
I'm a DISAPPOINTMENT."

[SILENCE.]

"I always HAVE
been.....ever since
I was....BORN."

[PATIENT VOICE.]
"And,
WHY are you
a disappointment
to Me,
child?"

"I'm not gonna
EVANGELIZE for
Ya. You're gonna have to find somebody....ELSE."

[NOD.]
"Ah.
I ....
SEE....."
[NOD.]

"Sorry,
LORD.
I'm SORRY.
There's too much
water under the
BRIDGE."

"Which bridge
is THAT,
child?"

"Ya know.....
JESUS."

[NODDING.]
"Ah.
I see."

"Too many
BUTTONS
get pushed.
And.....it's a very
old.... BUTTON."

[SILENCE.]

"I'm SORRY.
It just makes me
ANGRY. All the
PREJUDICE."

"I understand,
Mein kinder."

"Yeah;
I GUESS.
If You had
just made me
.....CHINESE....
it would'a been
different."

[ALL-WISE,
KNOWING NOD.]
"Kinda'lah.......
why do you
always want
to be CHINESE?"

"It's about as far
away from ISRAEL,
as you can GET."

[BURST OUT LAUGHING.]
"Ah......
I.....SEE."

"Plus,
the FOOD's much
better. And,
nobody ever makes
fun 'a THEM."

"Hm,
hm."
[NOD.]

"And.....
all that
gorgeous
straight HAIR.."

[NODDING, PATIENTLY.]

"Plus,
I would'a been
better at .....MATH."

"Isn't that
PREJUDICE,
My child?"

"Yeah.
But, it's a GOOD
......prejudice!"

[SIGH.]
"Oy vey z'mir."

"I don't like
when I hear
CHRISTIANS....
makin' fun a'
the JEWS."

[NOD.]

"It just.....
pushes...
my BUTTON."

[NODDING.]
"I understand,
My child.
But, you forget
one thing."

"WHAT?"

"I'm
the
Button."

The Jews
took up
stones....
to

Him.
