(Dodgy Dave Tale) Have Pulpit Will Travel Poem by JoJo Bean

Another Tale of the Vicar Dodgy Dave
and how he finally caught a soul to save
You see he has this friend named Feathers
And Feathers won't be found at a sermon in any kind of weather

But Dodgy Dave the Vicar was up to his old tricks
He caught Feathers on a double quick
While Feathers was talking to some friends outside the church
The Vicar rolled his pulpit outside with a lurch

Handed Feathers one of the hymnal books
Then asked to commence without a look
Feathers looked around and said 'I hope no one has a camera here'
for capturing this milestone event was his fear

Well David just happened to have his Tele Tinkle camera phone
and a picture was captured of feathers receiving his fire and brimstone
Everyone said it was about time
that this old sod got religion in his prime

But the best part was yet to come
When the Mayor arrived late and was told what David had done
The Mayor said he already knew
He had heard it all over the car radio news

So there you have it another Dodgy Dave the Vicar Tale
On how he had a church service on such a small scale
Capturing his friend Feathers so all could retell
The Vicar's Moto 'Have Pulpit Will Travel'

    These Dodgy Dave tales should be captured in ink I know a cartoonist who would have done them justice too. Sadly he is no longer with us, but fortunately your narrative skill means we can all share the giggle and the farce. Feathers is such a cool name too! Great story Dave. Great poem JoAnn. love, Allie xxxxx (Report) Reply

    JoAnn, Feathers is never going to live this down. His wife wants a copy of the picture and I'm also going to also give her a copy of this poem to go with it. Feathers real name is Henry and a right Henry he will be. He'll probably Chase me around the town with my pulpit in tow sow I'll have borrow my Apache brother Wolf, his horse and off I'll go with pulpit in tow. Brilliant capture at what happened. This poem will raise a few laughs over this weekend I know. Top marks and thanks for sharing it my friend.
