WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE AGAIN?—Jonathan

The Return of the Modern Philosopher

Doc BrownHappy Good Friday, Modern Philosophers!  Even if you’re not religiously inclined to think of today as Good Friday, when is a Friday never not good?  The weekend is here!

And it’s Easter weekend.  I’ve been writing about Easter all week, so the Think Tank is going to focus on the holiday as well.

You all remember how this works, right?  You put on your Deep Thinking togas, I pose a question, and then we all ponder on it and share our answers.  Let’s really generate the Deep Thoughts since it is the holiday weekend.

This week’s topic: If you could choose any person to rise from the dead to spend Easter with you, who would it be?

Let’s keep this worthy of the Modern Philosopher Code, friends.  We’re not talking gory, Zombie re-animations here.  I just mean if any deceased person could return to the ranks of the living to…

TRIBULATION IS COMING

TRIBULATION IS COMING

 

Do you know in your heart

Whom you can trust…

At suffering’s start,

Who won’t your feelings bust?

I’ve been daydreaming

About a certain friend

From another religion…

How will our friendship end?

If his group is then majority

Will I be fed to the wolves…

Or will he somehow stand up straight

And we both be summarily culled?

I pray for my wife and me

That we would stand up strong…

She’d prefer to go in the Rapture,

If we can live that long.

Paul the Apostle warned all

Marrieds to expect stress….

We’ve through a few

Episodes, not less!

Christ had knowledge of all men

No one had enough faith…

In the final throes of this world

Only God will make sure a soul’s safe!

NO RABBITS FOR DIABETICS!

NO RABBITS FOR DIABETICS!

 

It should be known at Christmas,

That sugar-free “PEEPS” did not fly…

If you looked at the market

You’d figure out why;

I’ve looked upon the candy shelves

And do not see them there,

It seems we diabetics

Won’t be treated by the Hare!

Those sugar-free sorbitol

Candies take the goose,

If you eat too many

The bowels will be loose…

At least if the eggs are real

With lots of good protein,

We’ll be filled up with those things

And not with jelly beans!

ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW ABOUT EASTER…Jonathan

evavanbeek

IMG_1486It tosses and spins
my body is skins

(and I cannot hold
for sunbeams to crush
the implacable slush)

It creeks and groans
my organs are bones

(and I cannot wait
for flowers to birth
through ice-covered earth)

It howls and feigns
my muscles are veins

(and I cannot fathom
the sun so clutched
that it cannot be touched)

DO YOU BELIEVE IN EASTER? from Facebook

HAPPY EASTER—DO YOU BELIEVE IN EASTER?DO YOU BELIEVE IN EASTER?
Not colored eggs and treats.
But a crown of thorns on Jesus head.
Nails in His hands and feet

DO YOU BELIEVE IN EASTER?
Not Mardi Gras or ashes.
But Jesus who was crucified
And scourged with many lashes.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN EASTER?
Not Peter Cotton Tail.
But Jesus Christ Our Saviour.
Who saved our souls from hell.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN EASTER?
Not really knowing why.
Now you know the old old story.
Believe and Receive everlasting life.

OLD LOST BUDDY

OLD LOST BUDDY

 

You were part of a group of three

“ALCO’S” we welcomed with glee…

Two we kept

“59” then schlepped,

Off to a leasing entity.

To New Jersey you went,

To be stored, available for rent…

It’s too bad my yard

Couldn’t get your dance card,

‘Cause off somewhere else you were sent.

I have a body shell,

N-scale, which will do as well…

Being easier to fit

In my bedroom kit,

As “59” it will look swell.
