While visiting the priest

While visiting the priest, we watched the caged birds mate
as we sat in the room for tea and cake was served.
My mother did try not to laugh and failed so loud.
I looked for proof the birds wereΒ  different gendered

As we sat in the room for tea and cake was served
the mating birds both fell off of their stick and died .
The priest began to cry so bad, that we should leave.

My mother did try not to laugh and failed so loud
that she was heard more than a block away from there
but still before we went we finished tea and cake

I looked for proof the birds were different gendered
their little bodies lying upside down I peaked.
I never did find out, the priest just made us go.

  1. Wow! When I hit this line “As we sat in the room for tea and cake was served the mating birds both fell off of their stick and died” I knew this poem had something serious it was saying. This is one of those poems one comes back to, studies, really tries to understand. Very well done!

  2. I like your twists of language, “My mother did try not to laugh and failed so loud.” I enjoyed the whole thing, the absurd picture, perhaps a hint of commentary and nicely done in a form.

  4. Thank you very much Morning!

  5. Funny stuff!!! I know a couple of my priests who would have laughed right along with your mother, lol. Being educated in Catholic Schools all 12 years, I know some funny priest and nun stories. Maybe I’ll work one in on the next funny bunny Friday. Blessings, Terri
