Tongue in cheek

Think that Jesus died in Tooting from
shooting up some dodgy gear?
you’re wrong,
he went away on holiday,
took a different job and got away
from the madness of his everyday
existence,
but
he’d promised me assistance
not this subsistence life
I live..

..and now
the good Lord works for the water board
turning water into wine
I heard that he’s often blind drunk
and having a wicked time.
