“A Salty Cup of Tea with Jesus”

    One fresh morning,
    While sipping good morning blues with Jesus;
    The King of Nazareth cried loudly,
    And I died loudly;
    For why He made humans..?
    To corrupt the beautiful garden of Eden;
    After all, why He made humans..?

    Tis’ we, have spoiled the beautiful Earth;
    By slaughtering the verdant greenery here,
    So elegantly in every birth;
    Leaving a reason to chase,
    A clue to live for;
    Behind and after each death.

    I tasted the salty tea,
    Blended with His tears;
    Since His sacrificing crucifixion,
    We have slurped of off him;
    And I was ashamed,
    To call myself as a Human;
    A heinous Homo-sapien.

    And I pleaded to Him,
    If my death is eternally undone;
    Better make me a Mosquito in next birth.
    He cried loudly,
    And I lied loudly.

    To gently hymn living further,
    For why He made humans;
    To be born again and again,
    After all, why He made me a human;
    A heinous Homo-sapien.'
