Kostas Lagos

Day At The Parish-Μια Ημέρα Στην Ενορία

-Father, is it a sin

to wear a mini skirt?

-Depends from the legs

my dear girl



-Is it a sin, father

to get drunk with rum?

-Ask me again when

I am sober my son



-Father, many sins I bear

I need to confess

-Is it urgent, child?

The match will kick off!



-Father, what your

sermon will be about?

-Annoying parishioners

who don't let me sleep!



-Father, it's the Bishop

on the phone

-You didn't see me

and I never saw you!




-Πάτερ, είναι αμαρτία

μίνι φούστα να φοράς;

-Απ'τα πόδια εξαρτάται

κορίτσι μου καλό


-Είναι αμαρτία πάτερ

με ρούμι να μεθάς;

-Ρώτα με ξανά,

ξεμέθυστος σα θα 'μαι, γιε μου


-Πάτερ, πολλές αμαρτίες φέρω

θέλω να εξομολογηθώ

-Είναι επείγον παιδί μου;

το ματς αρχίζει όπου να 'ναι


-Πάτερ, για τι θα λέει

το κήρυγμά σου;

-Για ενορίτες ενοχλητικούς

που μου χαλούν τον ύπνο


-Πάτερ, ο Επίσκοπος

στο τηλέφωνο σας ζητά

-Ούτε που σε είδα

ούτε που με είδες!

    Ευχαριστώ πολύ!
    Βέβαια, ο όσιος Πορφύριος ήταν άγιος, εγώ απλά γκρινιάζω...

    Kostas, are you working now, saying mass in Athens and vicinity with the covid virus still present? Did Greeks return to their native places over the Easter season? In any event, it has been about one year since I read your poems, and those of other poets.

    Ha ha ha, people may forget that priests are human too and also have a sense of humor.

    The funny side of Kostas, what a change! Is this the start of a new persona? A very nice read!

    The funny side coexists with the gloomy one but it's too lazy, so you don't see it too often!

    i would say 'Depends on the legs', which makes me ask: where are your photos! ?

    3rd stanza gave me a slight, barely-audible chuckle.

    -Father, what your

    sermon will be about?

    -Annoying parishioners

    who don't let me sleep! ...i'd say 'what will your...', but i'm not the 'parishioner'! Father will probably hear LOTS of snoring halfway through THAT sermon!

    Καλή, αγόρι μου!

    Truth is stranger and most times funnier than fiction. I can only imagine the things a priest is asked and why he would want to answer in a humorous manner. So lets grab some rum, invite the bishop and watch the game then we can all get some well deserved sleep. Great write, funny and clever!

    great dramatic writings
    ///
    Sin-
    satiates me,
    indulges me to nab my hidden virtue!

    I'm human,
    I'm child of nature,
    a clot of blood from gushing liquid

    Sin or Virtue is different being
    come and hug me mighty one from both of them!

    what a lovely factually lovely poetry
    Father does not know '
    what is sin
    he has planted you two
    to a population begin
    like the girls said about a cloud
    so does the father be proud

    sin is a misnomer no doubt
    when all do it
    can it be a sin
    its a situation ttally of
    win win

    THE BEAUTY of clouds
    concealed as in a memory '
    the petrichor
    we all adore
    awaiting at the shore
    for sure
    Father if any
    will all of you equally
    ADORE
