In the beginning,
God created
the heavens
and the earth.
[Genesis 1:1]
***************************
"Lord, I think it's about TIME!"

"Time for what,
precious."

"Time You TOLD us!"

"What, child."

"The TRUTH!"

"But,
[PAUSE.]
I have told you the
Truth, My child."

"Uh uh;
not about THAT Stuff,
Lord: the OTHER!"

"There is no other, child."

"Yeah, SURE there is, LORD!
Ya KNOW: what all those
scientists tell us!"

[NOD.]
"And, what is that."

"That there's intelligent
LIFE, somewhere!"

[CHUCKLE.]
"Where, child."

"Ya know, Lord:
like, on Pluto and stuff!"

"Ah.
[PATIENT NOD.]
I see."

"Yeah.....SO?
What's the VERDICT?"

[SILENCE.]

"Ya ain't gonna
tell me, Lord:
ARE Ya?"

[SILENCE.]

"Why NOT?
I think we've all
EARNED a right to KNOW!"

[DISTANT RUMBLE.]

"YEAH, Lord!
I DO!"

[NEAR RUMBLE.]

"Aw!
Come ON!
Be a PAL!"

"I'm not your Pal,
child."

"Uh UH!
That's not what the
CHRISTIANS tell me!"

"And what is that,
My ill-advised beloved."

(Laugh!)
"That You're our BROTHER,
and our FRIEND!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Then, maybe JESUS
is, Lord!
Can I talk to HIM?"

"Yes."

"Where IS He?"

"Right Here."

"Hey, Lord JESUS?
Could YOU tell me?
Ya know: about the
other PLANETS?"

"What about them,
child?"

"WELL?
IS there, or
ISN'T there?
Intelligent LIFE,
I mean!
IS there?"

[PAUSE.]
"What should be
more important,
child?"

(Puzzled frown.)
"I dunno.
(Look up at ceiling fan.)
Eh........this isn't one
'a those PARABLE questions,
IS it, Lord Jesus?
Cuz, I never UNDERSTAND them!
(Open Bible: flip to pages
with all the RED writing.)
I never DID
get that one about the
guy gettin' thrown out in the
darkness cuz he buried that COIN!
The thing is.....I mean,
he didn't throw it AWAY;
so WHY did he end up
gnashing his TEETH?"

[LONG SIGH.]
"Oy vey."

"WELL?"

"Tell Me, child."

"About what.
(Squint.)
(Toss a piece 'a microwave
chicken to a scruffy cat.)
I forget what You
asked me, Jesus."

[PATIENT NOD.]
"What is most important,
child."

"Eh............
Whether HILLARY'S
gonna get voted for
PRESIDENT, or not?
Will the GAS prices
ever come DOWN?
Will the Father ever
become SENSITIVE
enough to the plight
of the POLAR BEARS?
What's the meaning
of EARTH DAY?
What's the meaning
of LIFE?"

"That one, child."

(Squint hard.)
(Find chicken on floor
where scruffy cat
has been batting it around.)
"Which ONE, Lord Jesus:
Ya mean, the one about
the POLAR BEARS?
Hey, JESUS?
I thought You were
supposed to be our
INTERMEDIARY!
Can't You make a plea
for us, about the
BEARS?
This IS Earth Day,
and ALL!"

[CHUCKLE.]
"Don't worry about
them, child.
[PAUSE.]
Tell Me: what is
more important?"

"Eh..........I DUNNO, Jesus!
Hey, is it TRUE when
You were on EARTH,
Your SANDALS never
WORE OUT?
(Thoughtful squint.)
Oh.
Wait a minute......
(Sip bottle of water
which was
bought in the spirit
of healthy living,
and in honor of Earth Day.)
(Grimmace.)
(Go to fridge for a rootbeer.)
SORRY, LORD JESUS!
Wrong STORY!
SORRY about THAT!"

[PATIENT SIGH.]
"Tell Me, child."

"Ya mean about intelligent
LIFE on other PLANETS?
Hey, I don't think there's
even intelligent life on
THIS planet!"

"Why do you say that,
child."

"Eh......cuz, we haven't
EVOLVED enough, yet?
(Sassy smile!)
Just KIDDING!
(Put bottle 'a water back
in fridge.)
(Twist open bottle of rootbeer.)
Uh.........cuz......
we haven't all yet come to YOU?"

[SILENCE.]

"When's that gonna BE, Lord Jesus?
When't that gonna BE?"

"On MY Day, child.
MY Day."
*****************************
I am coming
soon.
[Revelation 3:11]
