One Day All Whores Will Magdalene

by Donal Mahoney

Mind you, now, my brethren,
the Scriptures never claim

one day all whores will Magdalene
and disbelievers Paul

and you won't find in Scriptures
a single verse that claims

one day all thieves will Dismas
outside the castle gates

while financiers Assisi
inside those castle walls,

their sharkskin suits in tatters,
their eyes, their tin cups up.
