They say that in the Holy Land
so very far away
there really are Samaritans
who to this very day
at Eastertide or then-abouts,
but wait.. Who comes our way?
Some long-haired wanderer, I guess,
but let us listen for a jest
to what he has to say:


"My names are one and many,
to some I am Jim Crow.
GOOD AFRICAN is what you write,
if you should choose to know."

"My name is Sean O'Hara,
your neighbour from the Falls.
GOOD MAN, lay down that rifle
before the thing recoils."

"My name is Isaac Mandelbaum,
Your face, I mark it true.
It is so clear that you should write
quite simply the GOOD JEW."

You are an actor, I perceive,
but me you'll not take in.
To change the words of Holy Writ
would be a grievous sin.
It says, I'm sure, SAMARITAN,
in the bible on my shelf,
and if you do not believe me, sir,
go read the text yourself.
