Adam Byrn Tritt


Jesus Christ went to prison today.
He was resurrected outside Washington DC
And immediately attended an antiwar rally.

Jesus finally appeared and
When they took him away,
Fox News didn’t know what to do.

So they pulled the story

And ran one instead
About a celebrity who forgot
To put her pants on.

Tritt—"Adamus"—is an award-winning poet whose work has appeared in a number of books and magazines you’ve never heard of, and is well known for numerous children’s works you haven’t read. He’s a frequent guest in elementary school classrooms where he can be found surrounded by children begging him to read Bud the Spud just one more time. He was so self-conscious after his first attempt at a poetry reading that he next read his work at a clothing-optional fundraiser. (“Once you’ve read your own poetry in public, naked, you have nothing else to fear.”) Tritt has a bunch of academic degrees, lots of initials after his name, manages to hold a responsible job teaching your children (with his clothes on), and lives in Palm Bay, Florida, with his wife, daughter, son, and a ridiculously large alligator, all under a very big tree.
