Jesus wanted to be
in the Army, but they
wouldn't let him.

"You don't have a birth
certificate or proper
identification," they said.

"You don't even live
in this country."

Then Jesus spoke:
"I am Jesus, son of God.
I can heal people
with my bare hands."

"Jesus," they said,
"We too can heal,
with medicine and bandages."

"But," Jesus said, pulling
something from his robe,
"can you make
a balloon animal
that looks like
a mastodon?"

No one else could,
so they let Jesus enlist.
But instead of being
a medic, He was commanded
to operate a machine gun
and let all hell
rain on the enemy.
