Mysterious Ways


From burning bush did Moses once

Hear Lord Jehovah's grim command:

"Go liberate my chosen race

And lead them to the Promised Land."


Though Moses hemmed and Moses hawed

The Lord brook'd no complainin',

And forty-something years from thence

The Jews were back in Canaan.


And thus it is that we as well

Live ancient Jewish history:

So anyone with eyes to see

Can surely see the Mystery.


For once again it's from a Bush

That God reveals his purpose:

To tame the race of Babylon

And fill Dick Cheney's purses.
