“Anyway, she’s not a flunkie anymore. She’s a born-again Christian now. And making a fortune as a Christian Rock/HipHop singer. Y’ever hear that song, ‘Jumpin’ for Joy for Jesus?’ That’s Bonnie’s. She formed this group, ‘The Merry Martyrs.’ They’re really a big hit; they sing all over the country, and booked solid for six months. ‘Jumpin for Joy’ goes like this,” Panti sang into the phone, venting repressed aspirations to become a main-stream entertainer:
“Lord, how long do we have to wait?
We’re in such an icky state.
Tired of livin’ in Sodom and Gomorrah
Where everything’s evil – even the flora.
When You come again, all will be fine.
You’ll lead us to heaven and we’ll drink wine.
You’ll know what to do with sinners
On the very Last Day, we’ll be the winners.”
