There was a dearth of criminals that year
So finally, rewriting the script,
We put a robber between two Christs.
The righthand Christ was Byzantine
A serious man, very keen on judgment;
The lefthand Christ was all brown-eyed mercy
So every time Christ on the right
Sent the robber to well-merited hellfire
Christ on the left redeemed him.
