Jesus Casts Demons to the Swine


Waves crashing and mighty wind blowing

Fishing boat taking water too fast

Rocking out to the storm as he slept

His woman strapped herself to the mast.


Going down seemed the only way out

How she loved the taste of untimely death

But this Jesus was not her only one

Was that whiskey she smelled on his breath?


To sleep so soundly in the midst of the storm

Jack Daniels seemed logical for some reason

But stirring, he reached for the captain’s helm

Smiling at her and her lopsided treason.


Violently splintering the boat on the rocks

And God praying their souls for to keep

Swine possessed, and falling into the lake

Jesus wakes with the woman curled up at his feet.

I like this piece - it has a Beat poet's sense of transgression - and a certain earthiness that contrasts nicely with the implicit spiritual theme. The play on the ancient story works well here - and leaves the reader pondering a range of themes.

history states Jesus & his followers drank wine

Did they ever get a hang over?
