The poem taught me that even some people could take a vacation but you have
to leave the resposibilities in the right hands or the jab will not be done

I think that it's trying to tell people that we are not in contoll but God
is. So don't put to many things up agenest yourself.It made me fell good
because i'm not god and it would be really hard.

Katie said everything. But it also means that power (economical,
political...) cant get mixed with the individualist point of view because
other people are envolved and deserve respect for their own lives.
Doesn't God love everybody? So humans to have His powers need do it too.
Thats the message.

You guys are all not taking it literally enough (or so my opinion is) i
think perhaps he is simply saying that even when people (of today) are
offered a wonderful and extraordinary job all we think of is when we can
take time off, how much we will get payed, and not even stopping to
consider anything but the statistics of the job. as far as im concerned u
all have it backwards, i think its more ment to be insulting US not god.

everybody knows that either God never takes lunch breaks, or he takes them
whenever he wants.
