The Reverend Johnny B

The Reverend Johnny B

A Poem by Gee
"

Take it as you will.

"
No need to dress me in Sunday best
with shiny patent shoes,
no need to play a doleful dirge
or maudlin' sounding blues.
No need for a casket, flower strewn
or brass plate etched with love,
no need for church, religious words
cos I ain't goin' up above.
Instead dress me in Hawaiian shorts
with flip flops on my feet,
pour factor fifty all over me
to protect me from the heat,
as where I'm off it's hellish hot
with folk debauched and gaggin',
for sex and drugs and rock'n'roll
yep music, coke and shaggin'.
Politicians, clergymen,
noble folk and w****s,
will be littering the furniture
writhin' 'cross the floors.
So I'll grab myself a piece of a*s
might try myself a man,
"Why" you ask incredulously
well I'll tell ya, cos I can.
As here amongst those judged and tried
where morals don't exist,
it matters not what orifice
you enter when you're pissed.
Not one will bat a coin closed eye
or raised a hell singed brow,
here you can do what the f**k you like
any furrow you can plough.
So if you think when you are dead
you'd like to come and see,
drop me a note in the Hades post
addressed to the Reverend Johnny B.

See ya soon !!

And no better man to sing it, better with bad teeth though :)
Went to the Harvest festival Sunday service today; then I went and read this.

Can't decide now whether to stick to 'beam me up Scotty,'
or press the basement button on the lift. :))

As long as it's not all milk and honey. Nothing like a good glass of vintage red. :))

A delightful poem. Cocking a snoot at society! I like it! If you've read any of my stuff you'll know I'm not averse to mentioning sex! What would we be like without it?

Thank you Augustus
I'm going to pretend to take this completely serious because it's a little funnier to me that way.

You should probably smoke more pot than you're currently smoking.

Never come to the United States.... I will find you and make you do unseemly things.

Cheers Relic, it's good to write daft every now and again :)
Look out for me on the way down Gee, I'll be the one on the barbecue skewer, being slowly turned old cloven hoof himself.
I'd try making amends, but i doubt I'd live long enough to make the slightest dent. Plus, it sounds boring. 😀

Nah neither floats ma boat!
oh, my i am so offended....ha ha...

this is great...once i am dead i can do whatever the hell i want without repercussion....and opinions don't matter once you're dead.
i love the Sunday suit part...i am such a casual person...sweats or shorts and t-shirts...it is not the dress, it is what is inside that counts...i would be so out of place in a suit...why dress me in that? when in life i despised suits...or any other kind of formality...
appearance and perception are such limited ideas...the soul and heart of a person are what matter.

Those that love you will know exactly what you would wish and hopefully will respect that, if not I'.. read more
JEALOUS! JEALOUS! JEALOUS! Your bawdiness is perfectly delightful here & I'm a-wishin' this had rolled off my pen. I must give you a run for your money some day. There's nothing I love more than satire on the established religious traditions, which you've done with such playfulness, it almost feels like your words are dancing upon your light-hearted rhyme & rhythm (another aspect I'm jealous of!) This is a great poem that appeals to my favorite mode of expression (flippant satire) Fondly, Margie
