"Is a Poem Depicting Mohammed Okay?"

by Jeph Johnson

So if Mohammed had been alive in an era

Where photography existed

Would it be blasphemous to take his picture?

And what about his burial shroud?

What if his miraculousness

(Like Jesus with the Shroud of Turin)

Burned his image into the cloth?

Would Mohammed himself

Be guilty of blasphemy?
