If Jesus Came Down Under

If Jesus came Down Under
Would anybody know
Would anybody recognize him
Wearing Aussie clothes
Would you know him by his postcode
Would you see him on T.V.
If Jesus was an Aussie
Just who would Jesus be?

If Jesus was an Aussie
I wonder where he’d stay
A Sydney beachside mansion
Or a shack at Byron Bay
An apartment down in Melbourne
Or would he live in Mortgage land
Somewhere out the back of Bourke
Or in a caravan

If Jesus was an Aussie
Who would be his mates
Murdoch, Howard, Ponting,
The rich, the powerful, the great
Would he hang with Guy Sebastian
Or the Jensens or the Niles
Or with the homeless and the down-and-outs
Would he stay with them awhile

If Jesus was an Aussie
Where would he be seen
Would he be a sun-drenched surf god
Or grace our T.V. screens
Would he be in church on Sunday
Or at the footy club
Would his voice be heard in parliament
Or just down at the pub

If Jesus was an Aussie
Would he be True Blue
Would he have a drink or three
Around the Barbeque
Would he be a likable larrikin
Who earns our admiration
Would he recognize Sir Donald
As the first born of the nation

If Jesus was an Aussie
I wonder what he’d do
Would he preach to packed out stadiums
Or at a rotary ‘do’
Would he be the guest at Hillsong
Or would he throw the traders out
If he turned up at the Mardi Gras
Would they claim that he’d ‘come out’

If Jesus was an Aussie
What would Jesus say
Do you think he would say ‘Sorry’
Would he march on ANZAC day
Would he take the side of refugees
Would he bring the troops back home
Would he say the things we want to hear
Or would he stand alone

Would the churchmen recognize him
Or label him a fake
Would they point out that his friends were crooks
And some were on the take
Would they drag him from a seedy club
With strippers on the bill
Would they nail his reputation
Up at Kings Cross on the hill

Dean, this is absolutely wonderful (I told you I was a fan!) Yes, you used humor and I smiled in more than a few places - but boy, you also packed quite a few punches in there as well. The bit about throwing the traders out got an "oooooh!" out of me. Your way of thinking is very impressive - for goodness sake, make sure you enter the Writing Challenge at some point! With love, Deb
