100 Days of Theological Clerihews
Day 16: John of Damascus

John of Damascus[1]

Saint John the Damascene,
His beard’s the best you’ve ever seen,
Said no to the emperor’s strictures
Because he liked to kiss pictures.

[1] I realize that I accidentally took a month off from writing these clerihews. I decided that as long as I followed through with 100 days of clerihews, it didn’t matter if they were consecutive days.
