Biblical Limericks: Black Eye

The judge was an irrev’rent bad guy
to whom the widow came to apply;
she said: “Do what is right!”
and the poor judge took fright,
“If I don’t she’ll give me a black eye.”

Luke 18: 1- 7

The verb translated as “wear me out” (NRSV) literally means “beat me under the eye”
