Ain't No Ninny

Where Creativity and Everyday Life Collide


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!)
