Jonah and the Whale, Twist

Today’s prompt: martini, tire, whale

Painting by Jan Brueghel

(Irreverent humor, no

Sacrilege intended)

If the whale had imbibed

Mammoth martini, Jonah

Might have been in better

Mood about his mishap…

Result of disobedience.

And maybe, as favor to 

Friend, whale would have

Spit out a rubber tire

Jonah could have floated

Full of penitent’s humility

To fall into God’s ready

Grace the sooner.
