The Highest Perch

a poem by Paula Puddephatt, UK

You’ll meet few vegetarians at church.

Humanity must have the highest perch.

Christmas without dead turkey would be odd.

Thou shalt kill for a pie from Sweeney Todd.



Want Biblical proof? We can grant your wish:

Jesus fed the five thousand with dead fish.

Let’s empty every ocean of its cod.

Thou shalt kill for a pie from Sweeney Todd.



“All Things Bright and Beautiful”, they’re singing.

I enjoy the sound of church bells ringing,

But what have churches got to do with God –

When thou shalt kill for a pie from Sweeney Todd?
