Cover of Planet of the and dog....


Three men came to my door
Asking “who was Jesus?”

They appeared thirsty
Like drunks in Finland

I didn’t let them in
The little dog wouldn’t have it

(In matters theological
Its good to have a dog)

Anyway one had to laugh
Even Christ couldn’t answer

Poor men
Transactional ghosts

They turned and walked away
Across my darkening lawn
