do you know I’m a Christian?

you can see it by my car

it’s conservative, economical

and it has a “Jesus-fish” at the back

 

you can see it by my cross

simple wood on a leather cord

it’s always ‘round my neck

 

you can see it at my desk

there’s a Bible on the shelf

and no cheesecake on the walls

 

you can see it in my words

of protest against all that’s sin

and rebellious against my God

do you know I’m a Christian 

I hope you do but I don’t know

‘cause you’ve never said you do

as I was passing by

 

Kind of a riff on the ideas brought forward in

“The Pagan’s Nightmare,” by Ray Blackston.

Not that he’s alone, but that he did it so well.
