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 !!

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.

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

LOL I have often thought heaven must be an awful boring place:) according to the standards of human interpretation we must all wear pure white garb, be absolutely clean, never have an impure thought, a completely sterile environment and chaste lets not forget that:) no arguments or disagreements and all doctrines are resolute so thus far I have taken away conversation, sex, activity and variety:) hmm perhaps hell isn't so bad after all!

You inspired my poem this morning Gee (thanks)
This may be fictional but it certainly has a ring of truth about it. Sort of story that would appear in The news of the screws. Remember that Sunday rag Gee? I reckon there's a few out there who will be sorely tempted to visit this place :) Hope all is good with you and your lovely lady. Have a great day.
