Cosmetic - Poem by jerry hughes

I recently met a man
who said he was Jesus.
He was certainly stereotypical;
Flowing robes, sandles, a beard,
and a bit on the scruffy side.

Impressed I asked him for further
proof, for instance nail scars on
hands and feet?
But I was singularly unimpressed
when he replied:
'I've recently had cosmetic surgery'

    Jerry, you should have asked whether he was circumcised - it's harder to fake that with cosmetic surgery! Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply
