Jesus on the Net

you ask me how it might be
if Jesus was on the Net?

would he waste precious bandwidth
on a fancy Christ home page?

jpeg grapics of the apostles
click by the cross to hear
the sermon on the mount,

would his picture grace the
cover of Wired magazine?

hanging out with the simple
folks of AOL--he's not a
Prodigy kind of guy,

would Jesus create his own network
and only let his disciples in?

unix freak, powerbook addict,
mac maven, downloading demon,

you can bet he'd be into
virtual reality--we'd
all walk on water,

internet for the masses
the best opium of them all,

no suffering here babe,
the King of the Net
would surely escape all flames.
