Biblical Limericks: The Persistent Widow, the Unjust Judge, and the Neologism


There once was a judge who was unjust
and a widow came to say, “you must,
oh judge, grant me my plea
‘gainst my adversary.”
But the unjust judge remained nonplussed.

The widow came again and again,
though the judge feared neither God nor men;
her plea was repeated
till his strength depleted
and he said, “the case is yours, you win!”

Luke 18: 1 - 5

(Nonplussed as “unperturbed” is a relatively new use of the word and isn’t considered a standard usage by some dictionaries.  Its standard meaning is “confused” or “surprised.”)
