Not So Bright And Beautiful

I don't get to watch Songs of Praise much but when i do they always seem to be singing 'All Things Bright and Beautiful', a cheerful song which praises God for all the nice things that he has given us because the Lord made everything apparently.
The big man gets the thanks for things such as the flowers, birds, mountains, rivers, fruit and trees which i think we can all agree come under the bright and beautiful banner but if God made all things then as well as the nice things in life he must also take the blame for the bad things such as the diseases and parasites that blight humans. 
To even things up i have come up with alternative version, 'All Things Not So Bright  and Beautiful' because if you are going to take the plaudits for making everything, as well as the good things, you must take the blame for the crap things you have made also.

All things bad and terrible,
all ailments great and small,
all things poor and awful:
the Lord God made them all.

1. The Zika Virus Infection,
Each little tic that bites
God made their glowing colours
And the scabies mite

2. Hepatitis D coinfection
Cancer and TB to,
Chicken pox and measles
Ringworm And Avian Flu

3. Downs Syndrome and Asthma
Melanoma from the Sun
Gonorrhoea and Shingles
God made them every one

4. God gave us eye infections
Whooping cough and sickle cell
Give thanks to God Almighty
When your not feeling well

Nah, satan gave us those things.

Don't remember that bit in genesis, god created the earth and everything in it.

Then Satan corrupted everything. Sometimes I think you are not a very good reader...

I stopped reading fairy stories when i learned that the easter bunny and father christmas was not real and read proper grown up books instead.

But did you understand what you read?

I learnt that some people continued to believe that made up characters exist well into adulthood.
