The supper table

One more cross for the hot cross bun
four more nails for the nail gun.

On resurrection day they’ll chew spearmint gum
for that sweeter smelling breath and when the cave
caves in and the sea divides they’ll watch as
Jesus sails in,

the good lord provides
entertainment for all.

I’m kneeling and praying for deliverance
or a hefty chunk of severance pay
one or the other will be for sure
my resurrection day.
