The Shorter Catechism Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 3

Sponsored Links

I burned my fingers on the stove

          And wept with bitterness;

But poor old Auntie Maggie strove

          To comfort my distress.

Said she: 'Think, lassie, how you'll burn

          Like any wicked besom

In fires of hell if you don't learn

          Your Shorter Catechism.'

A man's chief end is it began,

          (No mention of a woman's),

To glorify--I think it ran,

          The God who made poor humans.

And as I learned, I thought: if this--

          (My distaste growing stronger),

The Shorter Catechism is,

          Lord save us from the longer.

The years have passed and I begin

          (Although I'm far from clever),

To doubt if when we die in sin

          Our bodies grill forever.

Now I've more surface space to burn,

          Since I am tall and lissom,

I think it's hell enough to learn

          The Shorter Catechism.
