Matthew VIII28 ff

by
 Rabbi, we Gadarenes
Are not ascetics; we are fond of wealth and possessions.
Love, as You call it, we obviate by means Of the planned release of aggressions.
We have deep faith in properity.
Soon, it is hoped, we will reach our full potential.
In the light of our gross product, the practice of charity Is palpably non-essential.
It is true that we go insane; That for no good reason we are possessed by devils; That we suffer, despite the amenities which obtain At all but the lowest levels.
We shall not, however, resign Our trust in the high-heaped table and the full trough.
If You cannot cure us without destroying our swine, We had rather You shoved off.
