Jesus Is Trending (NaPoWriMo Day 20)

(Fair warning: Religious humor ahead. Keep reading at your own risk!)

Jesus Christ is bleeding edge.
The masses follow Him like sheep,
hanging on His every word,
every verse and every tweet.

His entourage is growing large.
How much cooler can He get
than His own show and His own book?
The “Undead” star is rising yet.

The cable channels love His draw,
and all the advertisers say,
“Buy our stuff and be like Him—and
Happy Zombie Jesus Day!”

For today’s poem, two of the three prompts I’ve been monitoring for NaPoWriMo related to “family.” As it is Easter and I have made most of the obligatory holiday family phone calls, I thought I would share the family joke. Lighten up, folks. It’s humor. 😉

More hilarity from NPR

If I don’t finish NaNoWriMo, I’m blaming Linda Holmes…

(BTW The Sound of Music is one of my top 5 movies of all time. I asked my husband for tickets to the local singalong for my birthday, but he refused. Adamantly.)

Post-NaNoWriMo Update: Well, I did not finish my 50,000 words this year, but I can’t really blame Linda Holmes. The good news is, I wrote 10,000 words and have a decent idea for a novel–better than the one I did complete during the 2012 NaNoWriMo. 🙂
