The Dilemma by John Collings Squire

God heard the embattled nations sing and shout
“Gott strafe England!” and “God save the King!”
God this, God that, and God the other thing—
“Good God!” said God, “I’ve got my work cut out.”

From: Squire, J. C., The Survival of the Fittest and Other Poems, 1916, George Allen & Unwin: London, p. 57.
