The attached PDF file was scanned from a document found enclosed with the geneology paperwork provided by Lorna Hulsebus (Simmons).  It is entitled: IF GOD SHOULD GO ON STRIKE.  I have reprinted the content here in case reading the PDF file is found difficult:

If God Should Go On Strike

(author unknown)

How good it is that God above has never gone on strike, because He was not treated fair in things He didn't like.

If only once He'd given up 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 orderes to the sun--cut off the heat supply!  And to the moon--give no more light, and run the oceans dry.

"Then just to make things really tough and put the pressure on, Turn off the vital oxygen till every breath is gone!"

You know, He would be justified, if fairness was the game, for no one has been more abused or met with more disdain,

Than God, and yet He carries on, supplying you and me, with all the favor of His grace, and everything for free.  [End]

Note:  There may have been more to this poem since if you look closely below the final line there is a slight mark of a capital letter that has been cut off.  This may have also been the name of the individual who wrote the above.
