Saint Joan of Mars
I love Saint Joan of Mars. Look at her. She’s lovely. After landing in Arizona to campaign for President Barack Obama’s re-election, she is Saint Joan of Arizona now! She has decided to stay!!!
Her entourage of 6,000 invisible Martians has beamed back to Mars. She stays alone. She stays to pray ~ to pray for Arizona. Hallelujah, Arizona! Hallelujah!!!
Everybody who has met her knows Saint Joan of Mars is the reincarnation of Saint Joan of Arc. Go ahead, ask me again. She is. She is the same Joan of Arc with whom Mark Twain fell in love. He wrote a beautiful book about her ~ one long first-person narrative.
Oh if I was Mark Twain! If I was Mark Twain…
