Jesus had a football team

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Jesus had a football team
12 of them on it like
Judas sulked and for 30 pieces of silver
Transferred himself
He lost tho’
Hung out to dry they said
By the red devil
Jesus and His lads played to packed out stadiums
Dusty tired but never defeaten
With a passion and fervour
That quite converted those who watched
And learned
Fishes and loaves
For the crowds who flocked
Chanting His name
And the Messiah after the match
Rode home on a donkey
Chatting to the terrace disciples
His fingers reaching for the lost
Not the keys of the latest Ferrari.



inspired by Clik’s brilliant “Jesus and Football”.
