Biblical Meditations In Disgusting Limerick Form

Warning, the following awe-inspiring bit of poetry is the theological equivalent of the childhood couplet, "If you're climbing up a ladder and you feel something splatter..."

Inspired by James 1:22-24. "But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was."

Forgets What He Looks Like

I looked at the Word through one ear
And thought I had nothing to fear,
For it went right on out
Of my head, through my snout.
Oh, and some trickled down through my rear.
