In the old city

There was the ring of church bells, but God was not in the church bells.
There was then a muezzin call from one of the mosques, but God was not in the muezzin call.
Then there was the still small voice of Jews saying shemoneh esreh at the Kotel.

A little background. Last night I was praying at the kotel. I was interrupted twice by other religions' self-aggrandization, and was inspired to write this.
