'plastic Jesus' - Poem by Ray Lucero

Some may laugh, some may tease us
For placing trust in a plastic Jesus
They think he's just a cheap accessory

Comes in colors, pink n' pleasant
Glows in the dark…he's iridescent
Take him when we travel cross-country

We don't care if it rains or freezes
As long as we've got our plastic Jesus
Sitting on the dashboard of our RV

Get yourself a sweet Madonna
Dressed in rhinestones, sitting on a
Pedestal made from an oyster shell

Going ninety, ain't so scary
B'cuz we got the Virgin Mary
Assuring us we won't go to Hell

Go ahead n' laugh n' tease us
For having faith in a plastic Jesus
Who sits upon our dashboard looking swell
