Flannel board Jesus

By Freeatlast ~

Hey flannel board Jesus


I loved you once


so debonair in your pastel hues


I snuck into the Sunday school room


To see you


To move you on the board myself


I liked the ascension the best


So suave as you drifted up the flannel board,


up into heaven beyond the edge


Cool move flannel board Jesus!


Your flannel board followers watched you go, as amazed as I





Out the basement window, the sky was blue


Blue as the flannel board the teacher used


to line the grooves of little brains


sitting still to get the juice and cookies


Our redeemer, our savior


Was coming back for us


I watched the basement window


Perhaps today!


I couldn’t wait to see you flannel board Jesus


Floating down as you had floated up


To take me to heaven too





I should have left you on that board


In that moldy room


It was easier that way


Bloodless


But I let you come off and go with me


Bone and muscle, macho Jesus


I believed!


And the blood


So much blood


Mine, it turns out


Because I gave you my life flannel board Jesus


Trying to make you real


When two dimensions always suited you much better
