A Poem for St Athanasius

The trinitarian theology of Athanasius
Was orthodox, not fallacious.
But how terribly nefarious
Was the heresiarch Arius.


  1. The moral theology of Pelagius
    Was unorthodox, not fallacious
    Not terribly nefarious
    Was fat,jolly Pelagius

  2. The theology of Arius
    Was confounded by a fist.
    Another round of thumping
    Would sure not come amiss.
