The Catholics' Fair

The Catholics had a fair last night.

I know, because I was there alright.

I did not try the carney-rigged rides

(to spare losing the contents within my insides).

The rides held up fine, there was laughter and ease

complemented supremely by a cool evening breeze.

The Catholics raised money in honor of the saints.

All the revelers seemed happy; I heard no complaints.

As I entered the venue, a priest said hello.

Though I'd never met him, he was among those I know.

Sure there's a fatherly quality about his profession,

(I wonder if he knew it's been a while since confession).
