Skydiving For Catholics

Just for a change of pace, here's an old Catholic joke, set to rhyme. (I'm Catholic, so I guess it's OK for me to tell?)

The canopy, it didn't open 
(and thus the rigger showed his worth),
and the jumper would be broken
upon that hard unyielding Earth.
"St. Francis, save me!" was his cry,
his face turned to onrushing land,
and in a twinkling he did lie
in a great and tender hand.
"Son, I must know you called on me
in truth; you see, I must be sure.
Did you call Frank of Assisi,
or Francis Xavier?"
And thus the moral here for you,
you'd best know who you're talking to.

The Five Minute Friday prompt this week is AWARE. I don't know...

I really thought I was aware
of life, and what I need,
and then I had an awful scare
when cows ate all my weed.
I'd put it out there in the sun
to get that crispy creme,
but then it all just came undone
and they came on the scene
and dipped their faces in the bowl,
and chewed, then showed pure bliss,
and in my heart it took a toll
that things came down to this,
that I knew not that the herd was nigh,
and now, alas, the steaks were high.

Four minutes, and hey, you were expecting Tennyson? And for the record, I don't use the stuff.

Sylvia knows who to talk to for ice cream, but while she's eating it, you can talk to the paw.


  1. Oh, my goodness! I'm laughing so hard about the steaks being high.

  2. I laughed aloud! You are hilarious, my friend. Needed this!

    1. Karen, thank you so much... glad I could provide a tickle for your funny bone!

  3. "Best knowing who you're talking to" sounds like good advice.

    1. Grams, knowing to whom one speaks is so important...and is a lesson I learned late.

  4. Both poems are so funny! But yes a good idea to always know who you're talking to. Blessings!

    1. Kym, I am so glad to give a laugh, mixed in with a bit of food for thought. I so wish I had appreciated the person to whom I was speaking, so many times.

  5. Ha ha! Thanks for sharing. Sending lots of love and prayers.

    1. Paula, I'm so glad to give you a laugh, and so grateful for your prayers. Love back!

  6. Priceless weed words.
