Poet's Paradise

The priest 
In my local town 
Is such a nice man 
Beautiful blue eyes
Looks like Father Christmas 
I pretend I don't see him
And I never say good morning 
Just in case he puts me on his list.

    Description so perfect that i cold see the mage
    But you pretended to bat an eye
    Then i shall turn over so too
    Nice one dear Teddy
    I am giggling as reading

            Hahaha this reminds me of school - in class I used to look down hoping the teacher 'won't notice' me and ask me questions! Good one Teddy.

            • Teddy.15

              Something similar indeed dear Rozina πŸ˜‚

            • Keith

              Love this...so much spoken in only a few lines - the sign of a great poem.

              • Teddy.15

                Do Priests go about touting for death.
                A bit like the undertaker, measuring you up for your box. Is that why they always say, go with god. I'm seeing religious in a new light now. Mind you, I'm agnostic, I'll live forever. Quite like the idea of dressing up as a Priest and testing your theory. lol

                • Teddy.15

                  That's just my theory the more they like you. LoL 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣

                • Neil Higgins

                  Naughty naughty missy.This made me laugh. 😎

                  • Teddy.15

                    So glad Higgins, thank you dear one. 🀣🀣🀣🀣

                    yeah, I kinda understand
                    the nuance behind your humour..
                    personally, I much prefer
                    those priests
                    (female, male or other)
                    we meet, down the pub
                    slumming it
                    with the rest of us
                    makes it all, a tad more
                    (another of your wonderfully witty
                    observantly poetic delights, dear Poetess)
                    stay clear of All 'lists'
                    with people that claim
                    direct connection, with deities
                    but still, grunt
                    when bending, to tie
                    their own, undone shoelaces...
                    wise advise, I shall ever heed
                    (and look at these scribbled words
                    you inspired me to ...erm
                    scribble?) lol

                    • Teddy.15

                      Scribble away my friend, watch out for them dog collars lol πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

                          The only church we all need,..I'm my humble opinion,is the church that God truly resides in. its within us all and looks like this❀️ I see organized religion as nothing more than a monument to mans ego. A great laugh here Teddy,brovo!😘

                          • Teddy.15

                            Well what I'm hiding from is the death list I'm not at all religious dear Joseph. πŸ’–
