miracles saved us all, and showed Lester’s love
for ham. He rose from death, as He had said. His word was

that fateful day,
the phone book don't tell
us, no. Now, modern times are hard on
some of us and cause us all to need the love of Lester.

Lester’s love
we handle puppets
and how to use string
for manipulation is just another way Lester sees

Or anything else that's helpless.
