‘God is a DJ’ is a song
I used to find
As if God would want us all
to the thumping beats inside
some grimy club, and no doubt high
on one or other drug.
Later on, however, I realised that this song
might have another meaning:
If God is a DJ, then it follows that
music must be divine.
At times, God IS a DJ, God is
coming over the airwaves
keeping you within the white lines
on the right side
of the road
and just in time.

I’ll hand over to Lennon and McCartney now, for who could say it better:
