the wholly holey unholy pair

overworked
and underpaid
underpants
are clinging
underneath
the undercroft
under where
they’re singing
Father Herman’s
sleight of hand
removes the holey pair
he heads up for
his sermon
and he leaves them
laying there
it’s a roaring
overwrought
discourse
that brings them
to their knees
and while they’re
genuflecting there
he’s thankful
for the breeze
