My poem about the meetings

    I wrote a little poem about being at the meeting. I apologise beforehand if all the commas and full stops are in the wrong places, i'm not very good with punctuation

    It's 10am, i'm bleary eyed,

    I'm at the Sunday meeting.

    I look around to find a seat,

    but no one gives a greeting.

    We sing a kingdom melody,

    but not a note's in tune.

    We warble that God's judgement day

    will be here very soon.

    We bow our heads, a prayer is said,

    I'm feeling bored already.

    Oh, how I wish I were in bed,

    or watching films on telly.

    The speaker starts the public talk,

    his voice a monotone.

    I watch the clock, it never moves,

    and give a silent groan.

    'Thy kingdom come.' My bum is numb,

    I think that this is crap.

    I fold my arms and close my eyes,

    I'll have a little nap.

    An hour passed quite peacefully,

    I hope I didn't snore.

    An hour of Watchtower study

    is the next 'treat' that's in store.

    Oh, look, there's Sister Spiritual,

    she answers like a pro.

    She parrots all the Watchtower speak,

    just doin' what she knows.

    I stare at all my brothers

    and I see their eyes look dead.

    There's not one independent thought

    inside their empty heads.

    Finally the meeting ends,

    and things don't look so black.

    I'm not a Watchtower robot

    and i won't be coming back.

    That poem sounds exactly how I used to feel.

    Thy kingdom come.' My bum is numb,


    When i first read that I laughed out uncontrollably. I know my wife is probably wondering what I was laughing at.

    So glad I wasn't drinking anything or it woulda been all over the keyboard.

  • BorgHater

    Haha, Stonewall, so glad it made you laugh. If we didn't have a sense of humour about some of this stuff we'd go mad wouldn't we?

    That was a great poem, funny! Thanks, made me laugh out loud at work.

    Normally I don't get along with poetry, but this one was very easy to understand--and well written. I simply cannot stand the waste of time going to those boasting sessions--on top of the risk of getting hounded before or after.

  • BorgHater

    Thanks GapingMouth and Wizard . Urgh, yes the boasting sessions were like Chinese water torture! And now i know it really was a complete waste of time i'm even more angry at all the hundreds and hundreds of wasted hours i spent sitting through them

    Did you think of that yourself?

    Theres some good thought and imagination gone into that.

    That beats a Kingdom Melody anyday.
