The Irish Priest: Highway Ode 2


In honour of St Patrick’s day, today’s verse is ‘The Irish Priest’ in the ‘Traffic Jam series. Have you ever looked around you while in a traffic jam and noticed the different occupants of cars, coaches and lorries? This is my take on that scene, I hope you enjoy it…

The Irish Priest

Father O’Malley
Sings loudly with glee
Accompanying choirs on his favourite cd
He’s planning his sermon
For his sparse congregation
They’re sinners and spinners who deserve castigation
He’s off to the Bishop
At a quarter past ten
He’s fed up to the back teeth with ordinary men
