The choir made my bones tingle, as always, but apart from that, I was fidgety. I thought of all the poets I would have liked to read just then, to excite and fortify me. Besides, Amen sounds an awful lot like a yawn. Like a lullaby.
That’s why I was so excited to find this on my pew:
Someone used the back of the Evensong program to work out anagrams of the clergy’s names!
I’m happy to see I’m not alone in my irreverence.
I won’t defame the clergy by writing their names out, but you can look them up if you wish. Here are their nicknames:
“Merry bog tril (l).
“Giant rim cork.”
“Ay, Lentil Bag.”
“O, Trash Oaf.”
All in good fun I’m sure.
