Vatican Prepaid Calling Card - Poem by Ted Sheridan

The guy was really getting into it until the Pope called
and he was commanded to extinguish his excitement;
ordered to dunk his stale donut into a Styrofoam
cup of cold decaffeinated and whiskey flavored coffee,
while reciting the Lord’s Prayer and repaying a hundred
Hail Mary’s that he still owed from the time he and his friends
went to the beach and stole a wallet full of cash,
while the sharks fed on its rightful owner.
They didn't get the word in time to save their souls because
Jesus had been on vacation at a different resort and James
was busy baptizing anyone who could hold their breath….

    Clever stuff, Ted! You have all the freedom in the world to write such stuff, but I forgive you, Father Ted, for your sin of pride as you ridicule what is so easy to mock today. Tackle something more challenging next time out! (Report) Reply

    Bless me Father, my excitement has been extinguished a few times of late..
    it doesn't matter how I try to light the rocket, James (well.. actually I'm not aloud to say) ... *delivered special in a Final C note accompanied by a G-string* aroha xx PS You get the point though, don't cha! ! ! !
