Ode to Zwingli

Posted by NT Wrong on December 4, 2008

zwingliThere was once a Reformer called Zwingli,
Whom I esteem above all — if not singly.
If of him you don’t rave,
You must be totally depraved,
For he makes me all hot and tingly.

    A fine art? Well, I suppose so. Now all the corrupted youth will think Jim is Obama who is the terrorising messiah.

  2. There’s another two of my theories shot to hell…

  3. I always had the sneaking suspicion that Zwingli made you inappropriately tingly…

    There was a reformer called Luther
    Who said to the Pope, ‘Holy Father,
    I know that you
    Think your preaching is true
    But guess what? Mine is much truther.

    Yes it would sound good to Mozart. I wonder if he’d write a score from heaven?

  10. I dunno. Sounds too tame a limerick for Mozart to want to set to music.
