I went to a funeral today.
The service was Anglican.
There was sitting and standing,
praying and amening,
hymn singing and sermons,
eating the body and drinking the blood,
I couldn’t help but think about
what would happen if someone
just busted out,
James Brown style,
dancin’ and singin’ down the aisle,
arms held high and hands waving,
perhaps with a tambourine,
and shouting ‘Hallelujah! Amen!’
Yeah — that would shake things up a bit.
