HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!
On the St. Patrick's Day, some nice lady sent to the d.o.m. the following verse:

An Irish Blessing.... May those that love us, love us.
And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles
So we will know them by their limping.

and the d.o.m. made some rustic words as follows:

To those who have hearts that love,
God is not supposed to do anything.
If he does anything - to turn their hearts,
then love will stop!

To those who does not have hearts to love,
God is not supposed to do anything either.
If he does anything,
then he does something in vain: no heart to turn!

That's why it might be said:
God shouldn't do anything to it, in either case.
