BISHOP – BITTERSWEET

The sound of believers at prayer
Can take on a bittersweet air.
"The workings of God",
Said a bishop, "are odd –
We're caught between hope and despair."

Some fancy the epic Greek stories
Of heroes pursuing great glories.
For me, they're too rough;
I like farcical stuff
Such as fights between Brexit-crazed Tories.

The scale of the cosmos is grand;
They say it will further expand.
As galaxies whirl,
Dimensions unfurl
In ways I do not understand.

A horse, terrified by a spider,
Careered through a field with its rider.
It splashed without care
Through a rivulet there.
Thank goodness the stream wasn't wider.

SACRED – SAFELY

When the enemy launched an assault
On our city, we stored in a vault
A sacred gold cross
As safely as poss.
It broke, but that wasn't our fault.

A chemistry teacher in Leicester
Explained: "I'm a rigorous tester.
It's essential at college
To probe students' knowledge
With questions like 'What is an ester?'"

If the noise from your neighbours' night revels
Increases to deafening levels,
You can write them a letter –
The blunter the better –
To say what you think of those devils.

One common delusion consists
In the thought that Damnation exists.
The people affected
Become so dejected
That many strike walls with their fists.

If you cuddle another man's wife,
It is likely to lead to some strife.
On a typical cruise,
With leisure and booze,
Such reckless behaviour is rife.

TEXTED – THEATRICAL
