Jesus & Mary & Moses & Me

Sep 27, 2022

Here’s a playful piece -- having fun with some familiar Biblical characters. Inserting myself with very good company in JESUS & MARY & MOSES & ME.

Jesus and Mary and Moses and me
went down to the ocean to water ski
Jesus could slalom — like walking on water
Mary in a bikini couldn’t look hotter

Moses complained the water was cold
I gathered pebbles which later I sold
while little old ladies admiring the view
shouted, Blessed be us and blessed be you!

For whatever we are, the same as we be
when down to the ocean we water ski.
