Christ Killers by Michael Marrotti

Christ Killers

Bob Dylan
gave us something
to think about
through the power
of rhythm and soul
you go your way
and I’ll go mine

Adam Sandler
made us smile
when life began
to show its
hideous face
tears can wait
Funny People
is hilarious

Michael Savage
proved to be fit
as my personal mentor
from inept to adept
he helped to advance
my critical thinking

Woody Allen
was there for me
when I couldn’t
make up my mind
over what woman
was best
Manhattan taught me
valuable life lessons

Jonas Salk is
worthy of my
the man is
a miracle worker
he saved millions
of lives by creating
the vaccine for Polio

From monotheism
to Hollywood
they survived Hitler
to produce
cellular phones
atomic energy
the Heimlich maneuver
and yes even Google

Bernie Sanders
was running
a campaign on ethics
all that support
he received
was a crucial blow
to anti-Semitism

The chosen people
throughout time
have endeavored
to make a more
sensible life
out of all this madness

The world is not
spinning in harmony
but it’s better off now
after all their contributions

  1. I have always wondered why the constant animus toward the Jews because if they had accepted Christ, He would not have died on the cross and risen from the dead and the gates of Heaven would still be closed as they were from the time Adam and Eve ate the apple. The son of Irish immigrants, I lived for 10 years long ago in a Jewish neighborhood in Chicago, Rogers Park, and in the hot summer tattoos on forearms shone in the sun. I felt more at home kibitzing at parking meters with Jewish cab drivers and lawyers arguing politics as equals than I felt among my own people back in that Irish neighborhood I still love so much. Thanks for writing this piece and thanks to Outlaw for publishing it.
