Was Mary Really A Virgin? (Js#3) - Poem by James Hart

To The BVM
A poem
For Mothering Sunday 2009


Mary, Mary, quite contrary
Please tell me if you can
Did you have sex with Joseph boy
And all the time say “I’m a virgin”?
And all the time say “I’m a virgin”?

Naughty, naughty, “Virgin Mary”
You can’t our model be
Of purity and innocence,
Of Jewish girls who don’t have sex
Of Jewish girls who don’t have sex

Unless the Church was quite contrary
And needed a virgin in you
So Jesus pure and free from sin
Could be our Saviour, you see,
Could be our Saviour, you see.

Mary, Mary, quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With artificial insemination
And sperm from the Holy Ghost,
And sperm from the Holy Ghost.
