Imaginary Friend & Enemy
He beseeches an imaginary friend,
a deified almighty being
to ward off an imaginary enemy,
a demonised almighty being…
who ironically was supposedly created by the first,
who strangely is unwilling or unable to vanquish the second.
Is the first really a true friend then?
Is the second really a real enemy then?
He had forgotten that they are both imaginary,
as if there is an almighty friend,
there would be no almighty enemy,
or the need for these thoughts.
