About to give himself the KO
and splat his bones in the avenue below
he glanced over his shoulder to Jesus on the wall
"Come here, little son", Jesus said,
"Do you see my holy toenails?
Last time theyÂve been trimmed
it was two thousand years ago
and now the time has come"
(I tell you, the time has come)
He stood shivering by the shelf
automatically crossing himself
(his eyes were jew, but the right hand was
a catholic maid)
He got the clipper and knelt before Christ
and beg forgiveness and started to cry
"Ok, but do it quick 'cause tonight I have a date"
"Tonight I have a date"
