Subway Theology

John Bannister Tabb

 Next Poem          

Bishop Potter, finding hotter
Passions than there used to be,
To the Gospel bids defiance,
And appeals to modern science
For the remedy.

Saint and devil on a level
Walked of late where all men saw;
But the wise, by his example,
Travel now a subway ample.
Paved with fragments of the law.

Here this up-to-date instructor
Gives each clerical conductor
Transfers for the nuptial route,
So that they who feel the folly
Of the matrimonial trolley
May, at will, get out.
