Jonathan Dodd

is also a moral tale in verse (164 lines). Here are the first eight lines:

Jonathan Dodd had a message from God,
Internally dictated
Modernly free from Thou and Thee, 
Colloquially stated.

You there! Dodd! You're a louse! said God;
And Jonathan Dodd took fright.
He examined the whole of his startled soul;
And he saw that God was right.
