Jesus plays small forward in our Tuesday night pickup game. He's a dead-eye from the 15-20 foot range.


I know a boy called Jesus
Born in late December season.
I can’t recall of which year
In the early 80’s I’d reason.

Though his name
is Jesus Christ,
He’s not the one you think.

This guy works at Payless,
And he likes graphic novels.
He looks good in earth tones.
He’s the online champ in Boggle.

His soda’s grape,
And Cod’s his Cape.
His timeshare starts in May.

He’s not named after the Son of God.
His name came to him from his mom.
He’s named after his great uncle, his great uncle Jesus.

We’re still friends on Facebook.
Jesus posts his hobbies.
He took spin class
To focus on his body.
He gave up on Tae Bo,
But he’d like to try Pilates

He’s good at darts;
He can parallel park;
And he makes a mean grilled cheese.
