A new study shows that over half of all Americans believe in guardian angels…
The Digital Cuttlefish has a poetic response for all those who wrongly believe an angel is watching over them:
… That time, late at night, you were hit by a car
And were comatose over three days?
Was an Angel the one who looked down from a star
And guided you out of the haze?
Well, no. There’s the lady who called nine one one,
And the ambulance, quick to the call;
Blood donors — seven, before you were done,
And the doctors and nurses and all.
It wasn’t an angel, but dozens of people
In whom you should place your reliance;
There’s nothing for you in a church with a steeple
But rather, in medical science…
And there’s plenty more poem where that came from.
