God’s not on a map

    I bought a brand new A to Z.
    I bought a map of Wales.
    I roamed around the whole day long
    Despite the snow and gales.
    I bought the Ordnance Survey too
    of all of the UK
    I looked at maps on Amazon
    and even on E Bay
    I studied charts of Greenland
    And Africa and France
    I talked to expert geographers
    Who looked at me askance.
    Borneo or Burma?
    Malaysia or Spain?
    Where does Father Brown say..
    I must read his books again
    But giving up, I came back home
    And lay down for a nap
    Suddenly it came to me!
    God’s not on a map.
