Three simple words
Commonly used
A mode of expression
Frequently abused.

When you are angry or frustrated
You bark, Oh My God
In excitement or in shock
You shout, Oh My God.

When you hold your breath in awe
In between gasps you say, Oh My God
If you feel low or dismayed
And your energy is melting away
You repetitiously moan
Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God.

Oh My God
You are everywhere
Mouthed by people of all ranks
Of all ages and of all colors
At all times
A concrete manifestation
That we acknowledge God
In our daily lives.
