Topic: Sunday School (10/25/07)

TITLE: Sunday's Cool

Sunday's Cool? That's the topic?
I wasn't sure, I'm so myopic
I had my wife repeat it twice
Into my one good ear.

Pen in hand, I now endeavor
To keep it short and still be clever
Surely there is something nice
About Sundays my dear?

They're Christian folk, so they'll be wanting
An article that will be flaunting
Something to do with the church
At least that's what I think

Something more than our arriving
Early so without conniving
We get a lovely parking perch
Without making a stink

The music? Well, I'd write of that
But our tenor's like a wounded cat
The weekly message? Not too bad
Unmemorable at best

So, what does make our Sundays cool?
Not learning of the golden rule
Really, it's just being glad
How God has truly blessed

My wife, now reading what I've writ
Is smirking more than just a bit
She says I got the topic wrong
And something 'bout a fool

I get it, oh I should have seen
The topic's more of Halloween!
I'll type up something very strong
Portraying Sunday's ... ghoul.

:) Clever. The fifth stanza is my favorite.

Great title, nice play on words. This made me chuckle:
The music? Well, I'd write of that
But our tenor's like a wounded cat.
Fun read.

Oh, how I love word play! I surely didn't expect this of you! Who knew you were as gifted with poetry as with convicting prose!

Cute but I disagree, my cats have "LOVELY" voices--hee hee! Great poem, I like your canter throughout it! Good job!

You make writing verse seem so easy...but it is so so hard and yet you've done it with wit and style. Great job!
Sheri Gordon11/07/07
This is very cute. A fun read. I love the part about the tenor -- I think I've heard him once or twice. :)
