The Visitor

I deem it unlikely
That Christ will walk again
At the millennium,
But if this event does occur
And he seats himself
On a crowded subway train,
Or perhaps donates his place
To another tired passenger
And confides to the crowd
That we should be kind to one another,
That we should cease concern with wealth,
That we should devote our lives
To charity and good works,
That we should, with joy,
Invite foreign destitutes
To share our wealth
And good company,
That we should enforce
That good behavior
Dominates the world,
He will, of course,
Be gently led away
To some institute
Where the wisdom of our society
Shall instruct him
Into rationality.
