-Totally disrespectful offer of unappreciated gifts
in return for exceedingly finer things-

and here we meet Miss Misery
unhappy with all there is
Miss Misery had but one and only one
yearning burning wish
which was only ecstacy for eternity
and interminable unearned bliss
so she asked God, "Is that too much to want,
in return for all you already graciously give?"
