Mrs. Graite had reached her limit;

    The pain no more could bear.

Her pastor's boring sermons

     Had led her to mad despair.

 

She invited him to dinner;

    Prepared a scrumptious meal.

He only took three bites and died,

    From the poison in the veal.

 

She thought, as she was led away

    In handcuffs to a cell,

"No more boring sermons

    Is worth all my time in jail."

 

But her prison term was short,

    'Cause the jury heard a tape

Of the preacher's boring sermons

    And acquitted Mrs. Graite.

 
Dedicated to the memory of Rev. John A. Woods whose humor continues to minister to my spirit.

A very intriguing composition, "The Acquittal" speaks for itself.


Keep posting, Poet!

funny write! some preachers' sermons ARE boring, but there are others who just grab your attention and won't let go. i had a preacher like that at the church i went to in ohio; he was great to listen to!
