HOW OLD ARE YOU?
A CONVERSATION BETWEEN GOD AND ADAM
A Myth by Alice B. Clagett
2015

Quite some time ago,
one of my nieces asked me,
“How old are you?”

I said:
As old as Adam, nearly.
Had to be.

Soon after He created Adam,
God noticed him moping about.
So He said,
“What’s with the woeful face, my friend?”

And Adam said:
“Well, you know, Lord,
sometimes I feel so down….”

And God said: “I can see that.
Though I love you dearly
— like my own son, really
— it’s also true , I have a universe to run.
It’s a big job!”

Thereon Adam interjected:
“That’s so, but Heaven knows,
you’re The Guy to do it!”

“Well,” continued the Lord,
“when I’m off painting the autumn leaves,
or maybe making sure the waves have plenty of foam,
I can see where you might sometimes feel a little down.
Like Me, before I made you.”

So they put their heads together,
and Ta Daah!
came up with me!

My niece said, “That’s a joke, right?”

I said: “Believe it or not,
that’s exactly how it happened.”
