If Hashem Were To Go On Strike

I posted this once before and am putting it up here again because it's so good!

Here's a really great poem to help you realize how much Hashem does for us!!
Taken from a tape, The Iron Butterfly, by Suki and Ding

It’s just a good thing that Hashem above has never gone on strike,
Because He wasn’t treated for or for the things he didn’t like.
And if He had just once sat down and said, “That’s it, I’m through,
I’ve had enough of those on earth so this is what I’ll do:

I’ll give my orders to the sun, cut off your heat supply,
And to the clouds, give no more rain and run those oceans dry.”
And just to make it tough and to put the pressure on,
He’d cut off all the oxygen ‘til every breath is gone.

Do you know that Hashem would be justified if fairness were the game,

For no one has been more abused or treated with disdain.
And yet Hashem has carried on supplying you and me,
With all the favors in His world and everything for free.

No more would flowers bud in spring and food just wouldn’t grow,

And summer turn to winter, Hashem can do it all, you know.
He could make the daytime pitch black so we’d see our way no more,
There’s just so much Hashem can do to even up the score!

Men say they want a better deal and so on strike they go,

But what a deal we’ve given Hashem to whom everything we owe?
We don’t care who we hurt or harm to gain the things we like,
But what a mess we’d all be in if Hashem were to go on strike!!

Please let me know what you think about this and how this can help you enhance your appreciation for what you do have!


  1. so true, it would be horrible if we didn't have the simple things we know about each day. Thank G-d for the blessings we have

    I really like it!!! We hafta learn to thank G-d for every little thing in the world and not take things for granted (myself included)

  3. I think this is a very important message, especially in light of the recent tragedy. Many times, we fail to recognize the little things that we should be grateful for and it takes something big to wake us up. We need to thank Hashem for all the things He gives us, down to the smallest details. Our lives will be so much more pleasant when we notice the good things!
    Thank you for this poem!


You made it to the end of this post! What do you think about it?
