God and the Devil went out for a drink


I  know this sounds like the beginning of a joke

But I sware on a stack of bibles its true

It’s happening in a pub tonight near you!


I’m glad lockdown is easing Dad

said the Devil

What do you think?


God sat for a while having a think


I’ll give it some thought

while you buy me a drink

What would you like?

Said the Devil

A glint in his red eyes


The first ones on me…

he went on

Laying on the table his scythe


That’s nice of you Son

I’ll have a larger and lime

While I put my poor feet up

I’ve been having a busy old time

It’s nice to get out every once in a while


Said God to his Son

As he sat there beguiled


Do you remember that day

When Jesus turned water into wine?

I’ll think I’ll try that Dad

You can watch over me while I turn mine.


So away to the bar, the Devil set off

and the bloke on the next table

started to scoff


Yea! Like he really could turn water into wine

If you’re that clever God do the reverse to mine


Handing God a glass of expensive red wine

If your so powerful and almighty, divine


Standing at the bar in the mirror Devil saw

Behind him what was transpiring

at the table by the door

God had picked up this geezer

And was throwing him out!


The whole pub erupted and in one voice all proclaimed

“YER!... CAST HIM OUT” came the united unison shout


Good for you God…

And God and the Devil never paid for another drink all night.


Well thanks for a great night Dad before we leave

I’ll just nip to the loo, myself to relieve


Giving a wink to the topless bartender

With silky long hair and legs Oh! So slender


Standing at the urinal

She came, stood by Devils side

Whose red eyes opened wider, ever wider and w i d e

Standing shoulder to shoulder, together they both stood


(Both with the future of mankind in their hands)


“Get thee behind me Dad”

Well I mean to say, you would.

Hi Leon

Speechless it is you are.

I remember you told me about your church and chapel services. I remember it very well. I never thought you are not a God fearing man.

I never judge you from what you write. Cos I know, you also write from other people's perspective also. An atheist, a fornicators, a drunkard etc.

You can never be misunderstood. For I know you, and even if I don't understand certain things, I try not to misunderstand those things.

At times I faulted, to err is human, n u forgive.

Keep doing your good work always. And remain your kind self. Let those who miss judge you, let them do. It doesn't really matter.

Real Po is a Hero😇💪

The pubs overflowing swilling down beer

Social distancing a joke

people everywhere.

AND That's just here in Sleepy Hollow!

The truth a bitter pill to swallow.

Unlike that Larger and lime in this poem of mine.

I'm off to bed perchance to dream

Sorry if you think my poem is obscene.

I think it's great... One of my best!

Help me out of my straight jacket vest.

Good night my Love sweet dreams

Emeka, Hello my young friend!

What a great thing to say... Thank you!

I have at least done one thing right today! 😉

You would not think I went to Church 6 days a week, would you?

I was the Church warden.
I was on the committee
I was the treasurer
I was circle leader
I was the church visitor for prisons and hospitals and people in need.
I was a healer two sessions a week
I ran the services at different churches all over the South East every single week.

I would give sermons standing on the pews
I would bang on the lectern lead the congregation in prayer
I would give messages from the dead as Good Spiritualists do.

I would have Sundays off and go to Church.

This is 100% the real truth of Po

Let's see what the dissenters make of me now.

Better knight's
better days
into your eyes
a lover gazed

drifting off to lofty heights
warm kissed days
and steamy nights

That photo dull
and plain will seem
when comes the man
Of whom you dream

I liked that pic so much. But that certainly ain't me, nor he in any way my man...😌

How can you post with an Avatar like that and say "I'm not a poet"

I never take any notice of you, you know nothing.
said Po with little aplomb.

Not a poet! Pull the other one Ha! Ha! 😂


Sat 4th Jul 2020 17:03

I agree with you Po. But my poems aren't poems, they are phrases n sentiments. That's all

I ain't a poet
And I don't claim to be one
For i haven't the poetic stance
That can win any heart
Before we met on wol
I only had few poems in my blog

I like quite a few of us recently are expending and changing (not as in our waistlines) as in what and how we write.

You yourself have undergone a transformation.

Stasis is death to a poet.

Now I understand what I did understand was actually right.

It's a different shade of you. Never seen before.

To spread a little humour.

To lift my spirit.

My God would wave his finger at me and try so hard not to laugh.

He is Not a vengeful God.

He would empty all churches of their gold, sell all the assets and build houses and feed the poor.

He would tear down the Vatican, he would smite the paedophile priests and dam those who defamed his name who killed in his name.

As for the devil, I have little knowledge of him
However, I bet he would piss himself laughing if he saw this.

Tonight the fools will drink and fornicate (well nothing wrong with that if its with full consent and why not)

However this pandemic is NOT his doing, it is ours!

I did write in the TAG "Sorry if offended"

If the truth hurts then so be it
if the cap fits then wear it.
If you don't like it don't read it.

BTW. None of this is aimed at you personally but you know that already.

I was refraining from commenting here, but I couldn't stop myself. This is unlike you, may be, Po a new you or unseen you. Quite a mess Corona has spread, just after lockdown lift, shops n bars flooded with people spreading viruses n germs....but here God has been used in what context.
