Crane Poem

This poem goes to show how we need to acknowledge that God has done
marvelous things, instead of just going to him whining, and then after he
helps us walking away and going back to our own things again.

Crane has a way to deliver the theme in such a minimalistic and simplistic
way that even the most creatively-impaired person can undertsand it.

I believe Crane is saying that even through our most troublesome journeys
God is not there, but when we deny His power, he comes with revenge. In
other words, God is a selfish one, caring only for himself.

This poem is wonderfully simple and direct in its obvious portrayal of the
uselessness of God, who is supposed to answer human suffereing: war,
murder, oppression, brutality, etc., and yet He does not answer, he is not
just. However, when there is peace, love, kindness, charity,
life--suddenly He, our Allmighty, benevolent God, is to thank, to praise,
and to worship. It seems God does work in mysterious ways; as well as
illogical and unjust. Seems like a bit of a sham to me, and i think Stephen
Crane would agree.
