There Goes The Family Again – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

At dVerse Laura is hosting Meeting the Bar with an invitation to write a tercet, choosing from a list either a compound word, or three words connected. I chose Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

“The world is charged with the grandeur of God.” Gerard Manley Hopkins

There Goes The Family Again

1. Typical father, running late of excuses,
drove his son to the Bethlehem saloon
for his starring role in a nativity play,
and the customary custody handover,
or Mary would let him have it.

2. What is it with Spanish mothers,
is it true that every second male is 
named Jesus, for god's sake why?
Are they all fishermen at play,
pulling coins from the mouths of fish?

3. The father ordered a second round,
the bar tender leered long at Mary,
dad drew and shot him full of that
one hundred percent  proof 67 spirit,
that got him cupid in the heart.
