The Ballad of Joking Jesus

  • Posted Feb. 18, 2009 by Mark Viewed 529 times

I'm the queerest young fellow that ever you heard.
My mother's a jew, my father's a bird.
With Joseph the joiner I cannot agree,
So here's to disciples and Calvary.

If anyone thinks that I amn't divine
He'll get no free drinks when I'm making the wine
But have to drink water and wish it were plain
That I make when the wine becomes water again.

James Joyce - Ullyses

      :-))) This is spiritually blackmailing people into slavishly following a religion... I can see you are a gourmet.
