GURU LIMERICKS 2 - JESUS
A radical rabbi called Jesus Assumed if he loved us he’d please us; Though he loved Mary Magdalene, John, and small children, His power was no match for Caesar’s.
British by birth, Jamaican by registration, Canadian by naturalisation, Australian by descent.
Formerly Danish, too, but I lost citizenship in becoming Canadian.
But no permanent status in the country I was raised in (the Bahamas), or in the country I've been living in since 1991 (the US).
My flag is the blue-and-white of the UN, all other flags are historically interesting at best, despicable at worst.
