Robin The Rich

It was a time of derring-do if Robin Hood you do

What Robin Hood will do. Robbing rich, give to

The poor. Bring down that Sheriff that’s for sure.

Sherwood Forest was his manor the hood of them

Days where he would plan the latest heist beyond

The Law but in the name of Christ. Gang chaplain

Friar Tuck dignified the outlaws, this merry bunch,

Whilst there’s hock to sustain plus meats to munch;

Lived lustily - true to his habit - always out to lunch.

Rob gave up some, but not too much, made Marian

Keep in regular touch, they exchanged love’s tokens

And such around the bush.. mm perhaps an analogy

One shouldn’t push. Things more innocent then like

Popes, straight as their arrows, may God be praised!

Loved that pushed analogy. :)

Bunch, munch, lunch - loved them.

Oh, and a clever title.

Gee thanks Marti it's great when the jokes hit the target so to speak. Did you get the innocent link with Popes by the way? It's an RC thing, I'm lapsed Catholic myself but taught Apologetics by priests - on a point of information Pope Innocent VIII (1484-92) sired eight illegitimate sons, not very innocent then. Frank

I do know of some popes named Innocent but the line went right past me! :)

 

I do remember that an Innocent (# something) was Pope during King John's reign, only because of the Shakespeare play.

 

Cheeky bounder.

"gang chaplain Friar Tuck"

Good one!

 

Being ex-RC, I find laughable, the whole "Pope business", if not so sad.

This was a spritely , merry read and made me chuckle at turns. Lovely.

To receive love, you have to give it...
