Resurrection

 

Grey haired men

Huddled

by WACA gates

 

He is risen

He is risen!

Show us the chosen one!

 

There is no room

at the inn?

Come back

Shrove Tuesday?

But he will ascend

by Sunday

 

We were doubters once

Mocked the holes

in his hands

Dropped that sitter

at Lords

 

Thomas called you

a hole

In our side

and hearts

 

Thrice denied

Now strutting rooster

Your cock

has crowed

 

Jericho

then Jonathan

Crumbled

before you

 

Armies mocked you

With trumpeters

siren songs

Calling you

to their new Jerusalem

 

But you are

our Saviour

Nazareth (Qld)

just past Townsville

 

We

your chosen race

Bow down

before you

 

Crooked

made straight

Poms

made low

Rough

made smooth

 

Reverse swing?

 

Regards

Judas

  1. PB – I kneel before our Saviour, St MItchell, and beat my chest:

    mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

  2. Mickey Randall says:

    Peter- Of course Christian imagery marries perfectly with cricket, and especially Mitchell Johnson! Lots of really clever lines, my favourite being

    But you are

    our Saviour

    Nazareth (Qld)

    just past Townsville
