INTERCESSIONS by Michael Healy


To ask for help

  1. A Personal Prayer

Oh God our help in ages past

Do not desert us at our last,

Overlook our sins, our greed,

Our vanity, and intercede                               

On our behalf, that we may gain,

A Place inside that Holy Train,

To take us to eternal life;

At least for me and my wife.


  1. Dear Wife, Please Help

Dear Wife do come and help me please,

I need your help, it is not a tease.

My socks are stuck around my neck,

I need your help, Oh Please! Oh heck!

I cannot reach my little toes,

They are so far down from my nose.

In between is my big fat tum

Oh please dear wife, be my mum!

  1. Thank you Michael, these are two very humourous poems that each contain more than a grain of truth in their words.

    However, I cannot for the life of me see how a man could get his socks stuck round his neck!
