May 17, Believers
A lot of gods born of a virgin, (1)
A lot who die and resurrect.
From them, the Jesus tale emergin’
The last to whom we genuflect.
Today, immaculate conception
Occurs in birds and makes females. (2)
Without a rooster’s sperm injection,
There is no “Y” for making males.
The Jesus tale’s a contradiction,
For he was male, the stories say.
A miracle, perhaps, or fiction,
A test of faith: apostates stray.
White evangelical believers
The solid core of Donald’s base.
They follow cynical deceivers;
Their TV preachers make my case.
Does virgin birth, death, resurrection,
Mean they’ll believe most anything:
That Donald Trump won the election,
Whatever bullshit Q might sling?
Our situation’s not surprising;
The Trump base is a fertile field,
From decades of evangelizing,
Their new Messiah’s been revealed.
- 1. For virgin births: Ra, Horus, Attis,
And if you search, you’ll find lots more.
For resurrection, there’s Osiris
And many more sang an encore.
- 2. Seen in the condor, chicken, turkey,
And other vertebrates like sharks.
Exactly how, still rather murky.
No patriarchs, just matriarchs.
