Warp Speed Jesus (Ascension Day Limerick)

Warp Speed Jesus (Ascension Day Limerick) May 29, 2014

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.

  1. 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.
