Forget And Forgive (limerick)

Updated on January 31, 2015

When drunk was an understatement

I went to the priest to repent

He listen to specs

With which I was vexed

Then off to the next bar we went

      Well, I'm not a Catholic, but I say "power to you". If I were still a Baptist, I would say "oh, my."

      You had me there! I had to ring my daughter again, so she could have a good laugh, too.

      Mhatter99...Why did everyone assume it was a bar for liqour ? You both could have been vegan and went to a salad bar.....or perhaps a ballet bar for a" plie" ( plee ay ) ...love your limericks , they're always so straight forward...hehehe

      Another good one, Martin. The priest must be an Irishman.!

      Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

      So, Martin, you drink and confess when you repent?

      A priest who goes drinking with you is 'heaven sent.'

      It's the one vice they're allowed. It's tough to be a priest.

      Awesome and funny.Going to bar together means they get along with each other.It is like the priest saying: Your sins are truly forgiven.Let us go celebrating that in a nearest pub.I mean no offence.With much respect ,I hold religions in high esteem.I voted up.

      YOU ARE AMAZING !!

      This is so true. I loved the use of irony.

      I love this. I was never baptized (my parents believed that was my choice) but the generations above me were all catholic, and yeah, I get it (at least in my head I get it).
