LETTER FROM A MINISTER

this month in the form of a poem 

People must be kept on a lead at all times

 

Dogs don't pee in the sea

They are cleaner than you and me

No underwater lamp posts tempt them

Despite the certainty of immunity from detection

 

Notices about dogs and leads

Imply great danger from the cannine breed

But when I stop and think a while

Humans are more dangerous by a country mile

 

Dogs do not run a global mafia trade

Stealing from the poor and calling it trade and aid.

Or turn blind eyes on sweat shops streets.

Because our greed demands that everything is cheap

 

So people must be kept on leads at all times

With muzzles to prevent their many crimes

And slapped with health and safety warnings galore

Stating danger, immanent, beware, a third world war

 

Jack Walker,
Minister NP Baptist Church
