View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

A bit of nunsense (limericks)

I belong to a limerick and haiku group on Yahoo.

The focus in this group is on word play and punning.

A recent thread involved nuns.

Some of them were amusing. Some risqué (with limericks, what do you expect?).

Below are a few appropriate for a mixed audience (in other words, the bunch of nuts who read me!)

Of attorneys, the nun was in awe.
To become one some day, she foresaw.
She did study and cram
So she'd pass bar exam,
And today she's a sister-in-law.

Kirk Miller
The sister-in-law may forsake
Her convent but make no mistake
She still wears strange hat
Her robe and all that
Old habits are so hard to break

Gary Hallock

The nuns have their own special way
Of acting quite silly each day.
They will have lots of fun
Making many a pun.
It's simply some nun-sense, they say.

Kirk Miller

For perfection she's quite an insister.
Other lawyers won't help, will resist 'er.
An assistant she'll need,
But advice she won't heed,
So for help she'll have nun to a-sister.

Kirk Miller
