Margie Margerini Wore a Thin Bikini

A poem by Zoltan James

Margie Margerini wore a thin bikini

To church.

Yes, to church.

She sat so demur, the sermon seemed a blur

In church.

Yes, in church.

She wore it all summer, ‘twas a real hummer

In church.

Yes, in church.

She wore it all winter, and never got a splinter

In church.

Yes, in church.

One day Roger Rogersong wore a thin red thong

To church.

Yes, to church.

Margie looked at him and thought ‘Holy Seraphim.”

In church.

Yes, in church.

She moved to his pew, to get a better view

In church.

Yes, in church.

She batted her eyes, and eked a prayerful sigh

In church.

Yes, in church.

‘Twas love at first sight, their eyes were so bright

In church.

Yes, in church.

He said, “Will you marry me?” She said, “Will you carry me…?”

To church.

Yes, to church.

When they stood before the Pastor, their skin so alabaster

In church.

Yes, in church.

Then he slid on her ring, ‘twas the only thing (she wore)

In church.

Yes, in church.

But it really didn’t matter, there never rose a clatter

In church.

Yes, in church.

Their friends let down their hair, for they , too, were bare

In church.

Yes, in church.

So the moral of this story in all its naked glory

In church.

Yes, in church.

Is, it’s not what you wear, or dare not to wear

In church.

Yes, in church.

It’s what’s in your heart that sets you apart

In church.

And. . .

Whereever you perch.
