New Road to Damascus
A smart young Jewish couple
Was strolling by a church
When a sign they saw out front
Stopped them in a lurch.
“Come in and be baptized,
And we won’t make you rich,
But we’ll give you a hundred dollars.”
Read the enticing pitch.
The man dropped all resistance,
And was forthwith drawn inside
Against the grave forebodings
Of his much more prudent bride.
Snapped she upon his emergence,
“Did you get your hundred, honey?”
Asked he, “What’s with you people
That you only think of money?”
