Poem A Day Challenge – Day 15



Holy Wholly Holey

What should I make from these three words?
A song I used to sing in church

A lovely cheese from Switzerland
A poor but pious preacher man

The socks that I wear every day
Green olives in my Tanqueray

Your bones from decades of hard life
Excuses made to your dear wife

Your body pierced without the rings
Bagels, donuts, other things

Holy Moly! I must say
That’s a lot of holies . . .  eh?


(just having fun, folks!)

I write poetry and fiction; create doodle art; do genealogical research; take photographs of the world around me; think about odd things; hike the red rocks; and obsess on food.

  1. I love this poem! It’s obviously witty and amusing and ends on a comedic tone but there are also poignant and wistful images contained within it. I really enjoyed reading this one.

  2. Excellent with a capital and whole E!
