I prayed to God for some guidance
But he never got back to me.
I asked Satan for some help
But I couldn't afford his fee.
I visited a synagogue, as well as a mosque
I tried to call up the Pope.
It seemed that no God was available to talk
All they could offer me was hope.
I drove all the way to the Buddhist Temple
But no one would say a thing.
I scoured the internet for information
And when Google didn't work I even tried Bing.
I thought I'd try my local officials.
I walked into the Mayor's office
But the bureaucracy scared me away.
The paperwork for this was tremendous.
I called up the president
Of the US of A
But his secretary said
He was busy until next May.
I couldn't think of whom else to ask.
It seemed that I was on my own.
I had no lifelines left
No friends to phone.
7 billion people on the Earth
7 billion souls.
6,999,999,999 who were all too busy.
I was, and always will be under my own control.
