Warp Speed Jesus (Ascension Day Limerick)

Jeff Carter wrote the following limerick, inspired by my post “Ascension Deficit Disorder”:

It is a part of our Christian creed
that our Jesus ascended, indeed,
but he ‘aint, to this day,
escaped the Milky Way,
unless, that is, he’s attained warp speed.

    Comments seem to be working here now. Sorry for the difficulties!

    Even the internets don’t like limericks…

    I like the limerick!

    Here are a few small modifications to make it scan better:

    It is a part of our Christian creed
    that our Jesus ascended, indeed,
    but he ‘aint, to this day,
    left the Milky Way,
    unless he’s attained warp speed.

    The fourth line still doesn’t have the same rhythm as the third. This is slightly better still, I think, although still not perfect:

    It is a part of our Christian creed
    that our Jesus ascended, indeed,
    but he hasn’t, you see,
    escaped the Galaxy
    unless he’s attained warp speed.
