If Jesus had AIDS
he’d have hung from the mast
of a pirate ship

All diseased and forsaken
savior of woman
savior of man
outcast just the same
strung up and flying like
a flag a-blowing in the wind
flesh and bones
skull and cross

Disciples wearing rubber gloves
Judas preaching republicanism
mother Mary awaiting test results of
flesh and bone
skull and

Cross the red sea to Hades
his duty to save me
degradation and an untimely demise
all diseased and forsaken
son of god
skull and cross
bones and flesh
if Jesus had AIDS
