Into the temple Jesus went
And said, "Don't covet or resent
The wealth of usurers and thieves.
For every camel that believes
The Nicene Thingummy, say I,
We've shortcuts through the needle's eye.
Partners and allies are my thing;
Proceed, gents, with your chaffering."
The money-changers, most devout,
Then took the poor, and threw them out.
