Thread Name: Lyr Req: Christians Roasting on an Open Fire
Subject: Lyr Add: CHRISTIANS ROASTING ON AN OPEN FIRE
This lovely little ditty is the product of the over-fertile imagination of Joe Hickerson, folk archivist at the Library of Congress, and goes, as near as I remember:

Christians roasting on an open fire
Lions nibbling at their toes
Pagan carols being sung by a choir
While Romans raffle off their clothes
Everybody knows when Nero plays his violin
All of Rome will be a-glow
One dead Jew, and an Arab or two
Hare Krishna, to you.
