Being Sworn In.


I swear

That I do not swear;

Neither in my best birthday suit

Nor in my underwear.

Not on a Sunday in church;

And never on a Friday when purchasing perch

At the fishmonger’s stall.
I keep cleanliness next to godliness

In my list of ‘learnt’ words;

Which consists of seven;

I’ll never get to Heaven –

No, I know I never will.
I speak with all politeness

And treat everyone with R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Which ‘is’ very ‘respectful’ of me.
But, once I swore

That I would never swear again;

Having sworn the once;

“I will swear no more!” I said;

And, hopefully, I will keep to this

Unless all sorts of things do go amiss.

  1. I swear to God G, what’s wrong with swearing, or sweating, or sweeping?
