God so loved the world…

Written in 2008 not published.

If Jesus was the shorn lamb
and Joseph the forlorn lamb
and the Holy Ghost was really Mary’s son
and God was just a dealer
the one who stacked the cards
is that how we got three gods in the one?
Who gave the benediction
at Jesus’ crucifixion?
Pontius Pilot, Judas Iscariot
or perhaps the doubting Thomas?
Who was the betrayer
and who was the bloody slayer
and who the nay sayer?
Was Peter just a player?
Stories of a virgin birth
then as now
create much mirth.
Who’s the saint
and who’s the sinner?
Who’s the loser
who’s the winner
who’s the pious
who’s the grinner?
Who would you invite
home for dinner?
