I love how people have tried to retcon the "it's easier for a camel to get through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to get into heaven" line from the bible as like "oh no no no you see back then a 'camel' and 'eye of the needle' meant something different!"

Okay, I redid this in 4/4 and it's...better? I think? Those damn dotted eighths!
