Competition 54: Vicarious Fun


With the season of church fetes in the offing, Covid permitting, you are invited to celebrate, castigate, or otherwise commemorate that stereotypical standby of page, stage, screen and Midsomer Murders, the vicar, or other functionaries of the local parish. ( In up to 16 lines by August 25th please.)

 

Grotesque carved wooden face with horns

I am no kill-joy with an  evil grin
But come from Stoke-in-Teignhead's Church House Inn
To say as usual Time has flown, not crept,
So here we have to close till early Sept.
