Jesters at Vespers

by grimbeau



After Sylvester evensong, Loyola piped up:

‘Out with the Pianola!’


(As Nasturtiums have for donkey’s years)

We were ready to kick out the jambs

The Easter Lambs & heaven could wait a quarter

Priscilla the Pig, our Abbot, dressed as Emile Zola

Got the  ball rolling with the much lauded Tombola.

A fine thing, like some tradition,

The Tombola of the Tropaeolum:

We put our Bull into a hat

Pull out the winner

And a new year

Doctrine is chosen

A fresh true rumour

To add to the credo

This is followed by

A game of sardines

An eternal favourite
