Trial of a Deity

The scales of justice have charged me with pride,

For I am too high above the human race;

But to this charge I must object.

I have scorned those who adored me so.

I have deceived innocent beings to gain power.

I have been thankless, selfish, and malevolent.

I have lied, I have stolen, I have philandered.

If this is not the behavior of a human,

Then I do not know what is.
