Lilywhite Jesus

Lilywhite Jesus


It’s the lilywhite Jesus

I’m supposed to believe in

As the evidence of things unseen


That guy in the pictures

Wearing long hair with a beard

Maybe lambs or a stream next to him

Long pretty robes almost, but never quite,

Obscuring his sandaled, pearl feet


The lilywhite Jesus

Who never lived a day on this,

The only Earth we have
