The Holy Daddy Issues - Poem by Les Wordsmore

She heard someday Jesus would come down and give her the answers
But Jesus crossed his arms
And he rose 'cause he just couldn't stand her.
I suppose she wasn't up to his standards.
'The Bible is a whole bunch of slander' he said
'I poisoned the fish when they stole all my bread,
And I got so wasted with thorns on my head
My blood just kept rushing down. Like wine, the taste.
Like wine was drippin' right down my face.'
I asked if he ever got mad, 'well, Ya'
He says 'I didn't wanna come in the first place.'
'Truth is I woke up from a nightmare I had
and said 'Dad I just dreamt that I died.' And he sighed.
Said 'Son that wasn't a dream, its a vision.'
And he sent me away on his mission'
God Damn-it what a shitty position.
I laughed and asked about his religion, he smiled
'Well, Christ! I'm sure as hell not a Christian.'
