Resurrection

I did not know that when  
Lord †Jesus shed  
by heavenís grace  
his cerements  
his purpose was to be  
a mirth maker,  
a clown.  

Yet thereís a fellow here  
insisting that itís sound  
to claim the resurrection aimed  
to bring mankind  
some merriment.  

Should I take him  
at his word?  

Or has he said  
whatís known by anyone  
whoís Bible versed  
and looked up just where ďmirthĒ  
is used within the holy text
and what it means**  
and whether it is ever said  
to be the resurrectionís gift
to anyone  
or its effect on men  
as something thatís untrue  
and quite absurd.
