Have You Forgotten Your Name?I spotted a child,
Mixed in with the crowd,
Her confused eyes,
Settled just below the brow.
I pushed through the crowd,
And knelled down by the child.
I then asked in a kind voice,
"Are you lost dear child?"
"No ma'am. I am with the crowd,
So I am right where I need to be."
She had replied quickly,
And I was shamed to hear such words.
"Have you forgotten your name?
Are you sure of who you are?"
My question puzzled her,
And she furrowed her brow.
"I was blind to reality,
But now I see,
Just how distorted,
This world has come to be.
No one knows who they are.
Everyone is just like everyone else,

The girl looked confused,
And at a loss of words.
"What do you mean?
Have I forgotten my name?"
"You are just like the rest.
You are lost in the crowd.

A moment of silence,
And a thousand puzzled thoughts,
Then she looked up at me,
And she told me the truth.
"I am me.
You were right.

"He's been here since 7:45. I figured it's only polite to... sir."
God sighed. "Fine, send him in."
While He waited God cleared His desk of papers and blueprints; no need for outsiders to see His plans. Soon enough the door to His office opened and God stood, smiled, held out a hand towards one of the two visitor's chairs.
"God! Great stuff you're doing in sector 2-7-0! Great stuff!"
The man's hands were clammy, his handshake limp. Rumpled suit, porkpie hat, briefcase... oh Jes-- oh dear, a salesman. God's smile slipped a little but He soldiered on gamely. With luck He could shoo the poor guy away in a few minutes.
"So, what can I do for you?"
The man sat, briefcase across his knees. "Sector 2-7-0! Everyone's talking about it! What do you call it? Man and merman?"
"Man and woman, actually. And thanks. But we're pretty busy around here, and..."
"Oh! Right! No time for the wicked, eh?" The salesman winked and popped his briefcase,
