“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!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Well, I don’t know
    What the devil planned
    But turns out
    Oneta’s poem did
    Rhyme well
    But I wonder
    Today is not Sunday
    Did devil enter her mind
    And played some tricks
    To make her write
    An Easter gig
    On a Wednesday😀

  4. I’ve gotta admit, that’s the first time I’ve seen that word in a poem about Jesus.

      😀 My father-in-law said in the pulpit one time that Mary’s buttocks got tired as she rode the donkey into Bethlehem. My mom and dad were shocked. So I had to think twice, but as I said to Faye above, it didn’t seem to be too shocking and I did think it gave the poem the punch line it needed. Shall I gargle with soapy water? LOL

    Liked the poem. Heister sounds like a great word to me. So I’ll say amen and wait for Sunday to let the praises resound!. Blessings.

  6. beautiful words of true faith! Hope Good will always conquer evil in each and every form!

    God bless you!
    stay safe.

    Great job! Love it! Thank heaven for God. 🙂

    And for poems LOL!

      And for poems. Poems for fun, and poems for more serious endeavors. You’re more apt to find me on the “fun” side; however, I’m trying for something different for Easter. It’s in the brewing stage. Maybe.
