My mum just heard this 'poem' on the radio. It's written by Australian humourist, John Clarke - writing under the pseudonym Anne Bonkford.

Mum thought it would be a suitable addition to Atheist Nexus.

It was the first poem read at the Australian Poetry Centre's Festival in Castlemaine, Victoria this year - as part of National Poetry Week.

Where Was JFK When He Heard I Was Shot?

One morning in 1962 a beautiful woman, husky voiced, married, but not completely satisfied within three months, fell in love with God in the supermarket while she was looking at some sunglasses.

He was “the One”, she knew, that face, those eyes!
This was it. She was gone. She would have given her life for him.
“Who are you?” she asked.
“I am Yahweh,” he said.
“What do you do?” she asked.
“I’m a Creator,” he said.
“A creator?” she said. “Really? I’ve never seen you at the meetings.”
“I am everywhere,” he said.
“I’m a bit all over the place, myself,” she said.
“I am the Light and the Way,” he said.
“I’ll bet you are,” she said. “Is there a Mrs Yahweh?”
“No,” he said with a smile that surpassed all understanding.
“You’re single?” she said.
“No,” he answered, “I am three”.
“I understand,” she said, “I’m in exactly the same position.”

ROFL that ending was just glorious! It also quite funnily coincides with what I am reading right now for school that women complain they would want to marry another woman for doing the household work instead of a man.
