What's Up With That?

When I was singing hallelujah
   with Amy G. on my car radio,
The decibel roar of a Challenger
   Hellcat driving by, drowned her out.
What's up with that?

When I was watching Charlton Heston
   play Moses on my television,
The electrical power in the house
   blacked out, no more laws to see.
What's up with that?

When I was driving to church
   worship on Christmas Day,
Traffic along the way there
   made me late getting there.
What's up with that?

When I was searching the net,
   looking for biblical inspiration,
Pop-ups blocked my screen,
  I couldn't see what Jesus had to say.
 What's up with that?

World! What's up with that?
Don't you want me to know
   Whom created you?
Is it chance or coincidence,
   or is it in your algorithm
      to hide the facts?
I think we both know the truth.
