HOLY JOB ... FEB 18TH,2013


HOLY JOB … Feb 18th,2013

By
James Bredin


What kind of guy is attracted to a job where he can't have a wife?
Can't have kids or a family for the rest of his long life?
Can't have a home of his own and must dress in a dress that's black,
After ten years in university with no girls and can't talk back.



But has to listen to girl confessions about sexual sins,
There's something about this priestly holy job that a guy can win,
And that's not all; he wears colorful feminine garments to the floor,
Can't try Martin Luther stuff from a German Cathedral door.




So here's my advice to our forthcoming brand new pope in Rome,
Compel all priests to marry a wife and live in their own home,
And when or if the priest dies, his widow and kids are cared for by the church,
Her home is her own and she doesn't have to go out and search.
