Who Are You, O Man?

Who are you, O man?

Funny you should ask!
I am he who digs for gold
I am he who kindles fire
I am he who rides the water and the wind
I am he who demolishes mountains in my way
I am he who probes the stars.

Who are you, O man?

Well, I suppose I could go on.
I am he who loves his own
I am he who hates selectively
I am he who develops culture
I am he who thinks, therefore
I am he who is.

Who are you, O man?

Hmm, what are you getting at?
I am he who can make this defense
I am he who wants a fair fight
I am he who responds to a cry in the night
I am he who causes it, too
I am he who is just and cruel.

Who are you, O man?

Bah! You are prying, now!
I am he who will give you what-for!
I am he who has managed fine by myself so far!
I am he who will continue to do so, thanks!
I am he who sees an empty universe!
I am he who needs no god!


Enough interruptions.
Who are you, O man,
to answer back to God?
Will the thing formed
say to its maker:
Why have you made me thus?
Who are you, O man,
to answer back to God?
