An Even Briefer Poem

Having just updated my previous poem post (now in two languages!) about a six-line poem I really like, I thought I'd post an even briefer poem I like equally well.

Creation Myth On a Moebius Band

This world's just mad enough to have been made
By the Being his beings into Being prayed.

-- Howard Nemerov

(If you don't know what a Moebius strip is, start here. Incidentally, I've seen it spelt both Moebius and Möbius; I presume the former is an English adaptation to avoid the Germanic umlaut; if this is wrong, or you have more information on this, though, please do add a comment.)
