ZIM ZUM. ZIM ZUM
Here I come, here I come;
Creating God, this is fun!
Sitting beneath Mamre’s Oak,
I give Abraham a poke;
“Fancy coming for a walk?”
Challenging Jacob to a fight,
crossing the Jabok at dead of night.
He wins, but I give him a fright.
One day on the mountain hoary
I played a trick most rotten.
Moses asked to see my glory,
but I only showed my bottom.
Isaiah in the Temple grand
got to see the lot.
He said, “I’m here at your command!”
I said, “Then stop the rot!”
And then I played my winning card
and showed myself as one of them.
Ended up in a dirty back yard,
adored by some smelly farming men.
I stretched out on either side a hand
as wide as I possibly could,
hoping they now would understand.
But they spouted some crap about cleansing blood!
Then they handed me a flag with a cross unfurled,
with strong songs of triumph and praise.
“Time”, they said, “to conquer the world!”
And I thought it was only a phase!?!
Still endeavouring my hardest to get through
with the aid of my bright Spirit friend,
with initiatives always fresh and new.
I’m sure we’ll make it in the end.
