James the Brother of Jesus Talks Smack

Hey, it’s is only my gimp brother making “miracles”
by the Galilee sea, wandering with his herd of lost boys
and prostitutes. Nobody asks me what I think of him.
Nobody asks me if I think he is the Anointed One.
The Way, the Truth and the Light.

How many prophets do we need?
He doesn’t listen, he has blinding headaches
that knock him down for days. His deformed leg?
He was born that way. Dad went easy on him
because of it. He wasn’t much use in the shop.
Does God speak through him? How should I know.
He won’t even talk to us. He says we aren’t his family now.
Who disowns his family in this world?

  1. Brothers. I got one – and he probably has a few things to say about me too.
    “He wasn’t much use in the shop.” Reminds me of the Mel Briooks-Carl Reiner shtick (“The 2000 Year-Old Man”). Reiner asks the old man, “Did you know Jesus?” Answer, “Sure. He came into the shop. Never bought anything.”
