Why Didn'T Jesus Come Via Ireland Or Scandinavia - Poem by gershon hepner

If the Jews don’t have a need
for Jesus, why did he not come
from Ireland or from Norway? He’s
have thought this question rather dumb.
Moishe Rosen, Jesus Jew,
asked it first, but it’s not clever.
For the answer here’s a clue:
Jesus very clearly never
liked leprechauns or had a wish
in winter, when it’s freezing cold,
to put on skis and try to fish
on ice, preferring to stand bold,
disciples famous fisher boss,
on Galilean lakes, a Savior
who didn’t choose to go across
the Irish Sea, while Scandinavia
appeared banal and rather boring.
Volvos Jesus wouldn’t drive
if you’d have paid him, though adoring
Priuses were he alive.
He chose the Holy Land to bring
the peace on earth and that goodwill
of which at Christmastide some sing,
though there’s no peace, and men still kill.
