Absolute Obsession

So you wondered how the saviour got that six-pack
while eating fish and bread,
and yes, don’t forget the wine.
Who did that PR stunt?
Who gave him the bod
of a Greek God?

Maybe you wanted a body like that.
If you could buy abs at Ikea,
would you?
If it would help you pass off as the saviour
with that shredded bod
while you fly on the cross,
would you?

And even if the folks in heaven
– maybe they’re angels, maybe they’re not –
wanted to build abs like their idol,
but never could,
and could just make do with the beard,
would they be happy
and settle with what they had?

Or would they head to that store on Earth
to prebook a load of abs?
