Holy Poetry Bus, Batman!

You know - I don't think this is what Pure Fiction was looking for at all when they set this weeks Poetry Bus challenge. But sadly, I am about as deep as a puddle, so creating a work of spiritual depth is tragically beyond me.

But hey, at least it's not blasphemous... I don't think...


God has taken up residence
in my right little toe.
I know that this is the case
'cos Satan told me so.
I'm not sure what he's doing there
or how long he plans to stay
(Lucifer was a little fuzzy on the facts
what can I say?)
But I'm happy that he is interested,
has chosen to take a role
in the problems of my little piggies
and my troubled sole.

It is quite stunning in its intensity, serenity, beauty...

Loved it! I want to learn it off by heart and recite it at amusing supper parties! If only I went to any.

Rachel Fox said...

It needs a bit BOOM BOOM at the end!

Niamh said it best, I think. God made our toes, so why not!
It does remind me of "Jesus Loves Me" in a way.

Bravo! Very, very good. Reminded of what Oscar Wilde said - life is too important to be taken seriously (or words to that effect).

Karen said...

Hee, hee, hee! I love it.

I write the poems that make the whole world sing
I write the poems of love and special things
I write the poems that make the young girls cry
I write the poems, I write the poems

Oh, very very good! I can see that in an anthology of humorous verse.

Domestic Oub said...

Oh Peter, thank you! That is a real compliment in my book :)

Though if anyone starts muttering Pam Ayres, I might not be as happy...
