Missionary Sadie… Two Shoes Tuesday

Josie at Two Shoes in Texas, is once again hosting Two Shoes Tuesday! This week’s prompts were either ‘fast’ or ‘smile.’


Missionary Sadie

Missionary Sadie left for the reason
to save cannibal souls from high treason.
She found herself frightened
and her caution was heightened,
because it was their holiday season.

And the rumor was they’re more liable
to dine on one with a Bible.
if she were inept
and made a misstep,
she’d be invited to lunch, undeniable.

So she taught them that life everlasting
would come to them just for the asking,
if they’d not consume others,
and if she had her druthers
they’d devote to a life full of fasting.  z~

    It sounds like an Irish drinking song which, of course, is a high compliment.

    Im afraid these come far too easily to me…which says a lot about my ability to throw down during a drinking song…empty leg syndrome…

    This cracked me up! When I saw the title, I thought it was going to a poem about unadventurous sex (which probably would have also cracked me up).

  6. Totally delightful and very clever use of the prompt “fast”! I never even thought of that! You are so very good at this, I was smiling all the way, and that's the other prompt for Two Shoes Tuesday this week! Thank you Zoe! 🙂

    This was so much fun. What was so good for me was to learn a completely new word and that was “druthers” meaning choice or preference which I think must be of US origin and is not used in Australia.

    No. I increasingly discover that phones and Blogger don't mix. Which is a pain in the ass.

    Glad you liked it though 🙂

    I bet you have an even more interesting word for it there! I always think of Australia as fairly colorful in terms of language! In terms of everything for that matter!

    Nice set of limericks, Zoe. Limericks are fun to write, these are great. Somehow I figured that Sadie would end up in a big cooking pot surrounded by the cannibals. Wrong, she got them 'converted'!
