Nineveh revisited (again)




When pressed for proof in Galilee
He spoke of Jonah's journey.
Amid the ruins of Zerahemla
He cited a Lamanite's cry.
What will He say of Los Alamos?
...
Of Los Alamos He will laugh
To say their priest is rich
No matter what he wears
And better than the Golden Calf
Are his friendships whom he serves.

And as its Nazarene pastor strives
To wake his struggling flock
Many other Watchmen sleep...
What will he say of America?

Los Alamos

  1. With apologies to "Nineveh Revisited":

    "When pressed for proof in Galilee
    He spoke of Jonah's journey;
    Amid the ruins of Zarahemla
    He cited a Lamanite's cry.

    What will he say of Ventura?"

    And to "Inquisition":

    "Of Ventura he will say
    Their Watchmen slept at Eastertide,
    While that which was written
    Did come to pass."
