AN EASTER PRAYER

AN EASTER PRAYER

Image

There, there

The fool that you are, Robert

Is that druff on your shoulder?

It is not, you fiend

Oh, Meg, tarry a while

I will not, I cannot

Please, I’ll make an honest woman of you

The cheek of it, you don’t have it in you

My kisses say I do

Get your lips off me, man

If you love God you’d want to taste a bit of heaven

That’s sacrilege and blasphemy

It is not, it’s as pure as snow to love a woman

You big bastard with your clever words

Come on then, undress a little and show me your thigh

Only the right one

And the space in between

Aw, Robert, you’ll ruin me

Meg, we’re all ruined in the eyes of God

Amen to that

Amen, Meg . . . amen
