I was an atheist until I found God in a dumpster –
But it wasn’t love at first sight.
Love wasn’t until God said, around the eleven-thousandth day,
“Do you want to see a dumpster fire?”
And I said okay.

He struck a match and the dumpster went up in flames,
High and furious and he asked me if I saw the light.
I said, “You are the light.”
He said, “Indeed I am,
But you had to say okay.”

Others crowded around for warmth.
There were four of us poor souls –
One was a vagrant who extended his shaking hands
And prayed vigorously.
“This must be church, man,” the vagrant said. “Hallelujah.”
