Pray For This Sinner (limerick)

Updated on December 12, 2013

Though preacher asked reason I wept

He knew the dark secret I kept

Into my soul reaching

Salvation beseeching

The whole time he’s preaching I slept

      That's a good one. At least you showed up, right? You could be sleeping at home.

      I used to sing in the choir. The choir loft sat behind the preacher.

      It was amazing to see how many people sitting out in the pews

      would catch a nap during the service.

      And, yes, it was mostly men! LOL

      Great limerick!!
