Psalm to Celebrate the Reintroduction of Blue Passports

A song of descent in the world
For the blowers on their own trumpet

When we learnt that we would get the iconic British blue passport(™) back
we were like those in a dream.

Our mouths were filled with hope
our tongues with songs of glory.

Then it was said among the nations,
“They've committed economic suicide for what?

Brexit has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.

Restore our gunboats, Theresa,
like in the days of Palmerston.

Those who once had reddy-purple passports
now will have blue ones.

Those who go out of the EU laughing,
thinking they've taken control,

will return with tales of woe,
and employers relocating to Ireland.

Want a good laugh? Want to laugh at the church? Want to be secretly suspicious that the author has been sitting in your church committee meetings taking notes? Then Writes of the Church: Gripes and grumbles of people in the pews is probably the book for you.

From Amazon, Sarum Bookshop, The Bible Readers Fellowship and other good Christian bookshops. An excellent book for your churchgoing friends, relatives or vicar. And don't forget it's nearly Christmas!
