Rupert Bear on the radio

I've just turned on my radio - I do from time to time,
A man was reading Christian verse, it really was a crime,
The tone of voice 'twas dripping honey, so sincere, so blinking funny!

Thought he was speaking holy writ. Like Olivier? Nah, like a twit!
And every stanza worked so well, it really was a rhyming hell!
His tomes were reaching to God aloft - I had enough, I turned it off.

Strange how many think that Church,
being a place where people come to seek God's face
Need to make the whole thing rhyme
And yet when gazing at His creation,
Ebola, ISIS, war and starving nation:

It doesn't!
