Idea I want your feedback on

So. I was thinking beyond
the usual topics — food,
sleep, what to watch —
and I wondered:
aren’t idols basically
clay dictators
with actresses who interpret
their wishes and weather
phenomena giving folks
an excuse to say we didn’t
make the god/goddess happy
so we try again.
Is that the ideal deity
because you get to contribute
to what they’re telling you?
Or is it a little gross?
Okay: ready for your input.
