Perfection Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 0

Sponsored Links

If I could practise what I preach,

Of fellows there would few be finer;

If I were true to what I teach

My life would be a lot diviner.

If I would act the way I speak,

Of halo I might be a winner:

The spirit wills, the flesh is weak,--

         I'm just a simple sinner.


Six days I stray,--on number seven

I try to be a little better,

And stake a tiny claim on Heaven

By clinging close to gospel letter.

My pew I occupy on Sunday,

And though I draw the line at snoring,

I must admit I long for Monday,

         And find the sermon boring.

Although from godly grace I fall,

For sensed with sin my every act is,

'Twere better not to preach at all,

Then I would have no need to practice.

So Sabbath day I'll sneak away,

And though the Church grieve my defection,

In sunny woodland I will pray:

         "God save us from Perfection!"
