Sister Mary

by McCutcheon
she was a theologian thespian
acting out the call of the Lord
she was habitually in her habit
I later learned
people said she looked just like a penguin

Her tolerance level- Nun (none)
Her personality- Nun (none)
Her sexuality- Nun (none)
Her own ideas- Nun (none)

she was batty as a bat
cold as a witches' tit
mean as a fuckin' twat
She would hit us hard around the head- for punishment
that was brutally taken undeserved

Sister Mary
you are dead now
I am glad
thank Heaven for that
Maybe there is a God
