City on the Hill

Jesus is my garbageman.
He stops by every week.
Otherwise, my neighbors say,
I really start to reek.

I love him doing wheelies
to let you know he’s there.
He lays a little rubber too.
Together we’re a pair.

Because he works for Providence
he’ll never lose his job.
But Easter’s coming any day.
You can’t predict a mob.
