The priest who wants to rest RELOADED

The priest who wants to rest went fishing with his dear cousin Nora A very nice lady, ginger and intrepid. Today she adopted a Turkish Angora The priest who wants to rest took a shower early which he enjoyed The water he truly liked, it was tepid; and he sang an ode to Sigmund Freud The priest who wants to rest has read the Bible sixty nine times more than Tom; his second favorite book yet not his number one; The one he likes the most is The Population Bomb. The priest who wants to rest played chess with the pigmy who loves giraffes; Our priest was shocked: the Faroese midget won! Horrid event! He can't afford such gaffes! The priest who wants to rest states indignant that medicine kills millions and also adds that doctors are dangerous. Some of his ecclesiastic opinions. The priest who wants to rest has composed a most terrific hymn with both hands (he is ambidextrous); A valid reason to admire him. The priest who wants to rest painted a most fine picture of a city, and explained to me what is a monsoon; Explanation and picture were witty. The priest who wants to rest got a visit from his sweet sister Odette; They shared a very fine meal at noon; His sister cooked a luscious omelette. The priest who wants to rest adores his nieces and nephews; By the way, they are very young; yet both have deep political views. The priest who wants to rest is nowadays studying Tagalog; He is very glad learning this new tongue. I notice he is happy and agog. He will come back. His return will be swell. In the meantime, you have a poem to digest. For he is a man of morals and no mannerisms. He is the priest, the priest who wants to rest.

This builds on the first priest poem; I still have to work out if he is popular or otherwise. Whatever it is, he has done very well here. Does the population bomb have anything to do with 69?!! cu // paul

This priest inspired me to write a poem on him! I'm not sure he's popular either. The book The Population Bomb (don't worry, I'm not advocating that book here) was published in 1968 but I put 69 for metric reasons. Thank you very much for commenting on this & Priest Poem 1 & Quick Brown Fox! Going back to your poems soon!
