Second Coming

Jesus Christ came back
in a peach Cadillac.
As he drove down the road from heaven.
He had an army of people.
Outsiders from different ghettos
all stood to salute his Coming.
He was rather retro,
though I wouldn’t say cool.
But side kick St Peter was smoking a spliff.
They were getting arrested
for wanting peace and love.
He looked like a shamen
with a heroic twist.
Then the Cadillac went into orbit,
done the biz. Flew off into flames of holy spiritual fire, bad guys were exposed,
and gates to heaven reopened on Earth.
