The Awesomest Sentence I Read Today

Ok, maybe I didn't actually read this... I listened to it on a podcast from Freethought Radio while working overnight. This is a cool little poem entitled Atheist, by Yip Harburg, writer of the popular songs "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?":
Poems are made by fools like me,
but only God can make a tree,
and only God, who makes the tree,
also makes the fools like me,
but only fools like me, you see,
can make a God who makes a tree...
He also has a great one on the weaknesses of the golden rule, called Do Unto Others:
Love thy neighbor as thyself...
Hide that motto on the shelf,
let it lie there, keep it idle,
especially if you're suicidal...
This great stuff comes from his book Rhymes for the Irreverent. I won't get mad if anyone wants to get me this for Christmas ;)
