Jesus Crackers

painting by luca signorelli

Jesus Crackers

Is that salty wafer really
a piece of Jesus?

Is that grape-juice-for wine
in that Dixie cup his blood?

Are Catholics & Protestants really
cannibals in three-piece suits?

“Take a bite out of Christ.”
the billboards announce.

Pardon my galilean grimace
and my clenched cramped fist,

Communion has always creeped me out.

Would you like to hear the author read this 55 to you?

Are you adept at dodging Lightening Bolts?
You must be, you're still with us!
Loved your agnostic 55
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick ASS Week End
