THE CHURCH

It stood there for many years
There were masses, bingo
And funeral tears
Weddings with flowers
On each of the pews
And the priest telling
The young couples
What married people should do
It stood proudly
The huge bell on top
Ringing loudly
Sometimes I wished it would stop
The parishoners all knew
Each other’s names
And so happily
Played bazaar games
The masses were held
With the statutes looking down
And the Priest
Normally wearing a frown
At Masses he screamed
About hell and damnation
Ridiculing those
Who believed in cremation
The Mass in Latin
No one understood
But blind faith
Made you do what you should
Children went to mass
Every Sunday
Holding their parents hands
Although they wanted to play
Life had meaning
Things have changed
The church once simple
Now rearranged
Sadly it did not remain as before
It is all about money
Not the people who are poor
The church has grown
It is now big business
No longer do they remember
The sweetness of Jesus
