Big Farmer Big Jesus

Posted by William Davies King on Wednesday, September 3, 2014.

On this summer's road trip through mountains and plains, I discovered this curiously shaped book (5.5" x 12.75") in a used bookstore--Big Farmer Big.

 

A sticker on the endpapers tells me it was originally bought from Schuster Books in Milwaukee, where, I presume, you would also find Little Farmer Little still stuck to the front cover.

 

I found, instead, a gap there--LFL lost, like a soul--just a void.

 

So I brought Big Jesus in.

We saw a lot of Him, too, on the road trip, in farmer's fields, expressing reactionary political views.

Bill boarding.

I happen to know a farmer--Ruthie--whose view do not line up that way.

Thank the Lord.
