my lion, sweet faithfulWhat do you say to a man
(my darling, my sweetheart)
who's seen too much?
(let me see those eyes)
I like you
(for all you're a thief)
I love you
(for all you're a noble)
If only I'd known half the secrets of your Lioness
(young lion, see your companion)
were held in that book
(a scientific journal)
I'd have worked harder to translate it
Come the war
(see your companion for what she really is)
Come the avarice
(this ancient riverbed)
Come the favour of the gods to the man who kills her!
Better you die and become a legend
(legends force no one to change)
So knock me down, tear me up
(he would have killed you but you didn't kill him).

(what were the words I meant to say before you left?)
I wouldn't have time to sleep
(I love you).
I retain my soul, faithful
(surely I would know if it was gone)

While He waited God cleared His desk of papers and blueprints; no need for outsiders to see His plans. Soon enough the door to His office opened and God stood, smiled, held out a hand towards one of the two visitor's chairs.
"God! Great stuff you're doing in sector 2-7-0! Great stuff!"
The man's hands were clammy, his handshake limp. Rumpled suit, porkpie hat, briefcase... oh Jes-- oh dear, a salesman. God's smile slipped a little but He soldiered on gamely. With luck He could shoo the poor guy away in a few minutes.
"So, what can I do for you?"
The man sat, briefcase across his knees. "Sector 2-7-0! Everyone's talking about it! What do you call it? Man and merman?"
"Man and woman, actually. And thanks. But we're pretty busy around here, and..."
"Oh! Right! No time for the wicked, eh?" The salesman winked and popped his briefcase,
