My Husband is a Church Mouse

My husband is a church mouse
He was born at the altar
We met in church
He lived behind it

My husband prays twenty times a day
He says prayer is the key to heaven
And I ask him whenever I see him
What is the key to his penis?

My husband fears sex
He says it is a sin
That it will hinder him from spreading the gospel
Tell me,if my husband spreads the gospel,who will spread my legs?

My husband has a blue hand
No,I think a holy snake resides in his pockets
It bites him every time I ask for money
And sleeps when it is tithing time

My husband is a vegetarian
Eating all kinds of flesh is a taboo for him
He is allergic to my nipples
And cannot stand the sight of my fleshy thighs
My husband has a verse for every problem
The Most High will work it out,his mantra
He has weak bones
That cannot carry me to bed

My husband is a church mouse
He reported me to his pastor
Said I was a sinful woman
Because I said that his thing resembled a mouse's tail

My husband is a church mouse

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

you should have been aware that your husband was a church mouse before you married him! Maybe you should get a divorce? Otherwise, I think that you must do with self-gratification and empty pockets! As long as you continue to abide by the rules of explicit content, you may post whatever you like. Personally, I was not shocked by your work, as there have been some others who have written much worse. Welcome to Neo. I do hope that we see some of your work on the Stream, so that you can get the attention and advice that you want for making yourself a better poet. ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?
