“Ah-ha,” thought the devil, “I now have a plan!
It will guarantee me the life of every man.
This Jesus. Ha! He plans to be King.
Well I know what to do that changes everything.”
So he set about his plan to do his worst
Defeating the “King” and every man on earth.
“I’ll cut off the life of that “King”
Crying out in agony will be the song that they sing.”
So Good Friday came about,
Seemed his plan had all worked out.
Jesus’ followers all fearfully cried.
For Jesus had been crucified.
The devil strutted all around
Enjoying the misery that he found.
But Sunday morning – “What, what is that?”
He found Jesus was up to bat!
Jesus threw him a terrible curve,
Making him sweat and swerve!
So Jesus kicked him in the keister,
and that, my friend, is what we call Easter!
