God Makes Good Things


When my car broke down on the road,
he was sitting in the bucket seat, my little boy.
Almost five, he got edgy and said: "Why cars go phut? "
"It's the road, child, " I casually explained.
He looked away fidgeting with the school badge,
craned his neck out and said: "God makes good things,
Mum and Dad, Cocoa milk, and PlayStation but roads."

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
