cornbread kingdom come

american jesus
resurrected rebranded
cornbread jesus
before the second
coming of his mall
first five thousand
visitors get free
lox & bagels
late arrivals bitch
he coulda fed us all
ya know

cornbread jesus
catalog features
red light lasers for
buddha cats and
veggie burger coupons
for hindu t rexes
lifelike mary
robot bleeds every
month for three days
sometimes five
tampons not included
download the app
now for ten
percent off salvation
there will be a
raffle for prominent
empty passover seat of
prophets and dead tzaddiks
order two salvations for
another ten percent off
or family discount

why he wanna deal with
sheep anyway
sheep stink
thank you for your
payment your salvation is

james dean resurrected as
a trans is cornbread

allen is cornbread
love is cornbread
meryl streep is cornbread

centurions kneel eat
cornbread rabbi on a stick
as cornbread jesus bus
guy in a goofy fish
hat at the wheel
takes the cornbread temple
to its next tour
