Friends, we're gathered here
today for the reading of
Jesus' Will and Testament
I, Jesus, being of sound soul
and well used body, do hereby
bequeath all I have to my people.
As I scribe this papyrus, I wish to
say that probate will not be necessary
yet knowing as I do, that you will
render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s.
I can only add that I bequeath to
all in equal amounts the blessing
of my father. Had it been different
I would have told you. In his house
are many mansions and in each are
many rooms. Everyone gets a room.
I bequeath the earth to you meek.
Paul gets the business.
Peace for everyone.

About this poem:with apologies to Rob, I contemplate others irations (I know it's not a word...) but have worked on this awhile and WISH to get others views. I don't think it belongs on a forum or blog...but I have been wrong before. I don't see it as actually religious.
