If Jesus Had A Brother

     Please excuse me if this poem sounds or seems somewhat sacrilegious, it was not intended to be so..It is just another example of what goes on in this head of mine, when I start thinking..Rare as that may be…The beginnings are the easy part, (just a word or a phrase as I have said, ad nauseam) but the body and ending of the poem, take a bit more thought (or lack thereof).. ‘Just make it rhyme dummy’…  It is sort of like going on a road trip in a vehicle, but having no idea as to where you are going or how to get there, and for that matter, why you are going in the first place.. I wish there was AAA for bloggers. “Yes, hello, I am in need of a trip ticket.” (pause) “Huh?  Oh,,  no, I don’t know where I want to go on this one!” (pause) ” But duh!! — That is why I called you.” …(Click)… “Hello, hello, did you just hang-up on me? I’m paying your salary you know!! Get back here!! Do you know who I am??”

     Anyway, please do not take the poem or the poet too seriously on this one..

      I am hoping for a thrilling Thursday, tell your friends if you like it.. but, please be quiet if you don’t..

If Jesus Had A Brother

 Jesus was an only child,

with demeanor, meek and mild.

But, what if his mother,

had delivered a brother,

whose demeanor was not meek,

but wild?


 For no human could possibly measure,

to the Father’s, most sacred treasure.

What if he had rebelled,

would that damn him to hell,

or free him, to sin, at his leisure?
