Eye in the Sky

And God commissioned
a computer program to be made,
one that could see
the entire Earth.
And a programmer created it,
and called it Google Earth.
And it was presented to God
for beta testing.
He checked all the lands of the planet Earth,
and was pleased.
Then he checked
the waters of the Earth,
and saw something which disturbed him.
So God asked,
"What are those white things
scattered across the surface of the sea?
It seems the people have been polluting my oceans
with their trash."
The programmer answered,
"You can zoom in closer
and check, my Lord."
And God zoomed in,
and laughed.
"My bad," God said.
"It's just the waves."
