In Praise of Bad Art

If you want to make God laugh
mention "create" after a personal pronoun.
(Ex nihilo is the better trick.)

For Him everything is cloying,
mere sentiment and cliché
were he were not Simplicity and Lover
of the immature and unlovable.

Critical eyes dimiss and disparage
but the Authentic One mocks not
our derivative attempts.
