The Highest Perch - Poem by Paula Puddephatt

You’ll meet few vegetarians at church.
Humanity must have the highest perch.
Christmas without dead turkey would be odd.
Thou shalt kill for a pie from Sweeney Todd.

Want Biblical proof? We can grant your wish:
Jesus fed the five thousand with dead fish.
Let’s empty every ocean of its cod.
Thou shalt kill for a pie from Sweeney Todd.

“All Things Bright and Beautiful”, they’re singing.
I enjoy the sound of church bells ringing,
But what have churches got to do with God –
When thou shalt kill for a pie from Sweeney Todd?
