First century Christians
  To avoid detection
    Would draw half a fish in the sand.

The other man
  To indicate his stand
    Would complete the fish with his cane.

To make it plain
  Would get one of them slain
    And neither of them wished to die.

I wish that I
  Such an approach could try
    When communicating with you.

I would clue you
  With my half of the truth
    Then you would act like a Christian.
