Orthodox Faster

Tofuwith apologies to Sir Paul

Orthodox faster, faster, faster

Please Theotokos won’t you hear my prayer
I know you’re merciful or I wouldnt dare
My spirit’s willing but my flesh is weak
Cos my flesh loves meat, but I want to be an Orthodox faster
Orthodox faster

It’s a thousand days, or it seems at least
From Forgiveness Sunday to the Pascha feast
I love my chicken, and I love my beef
But it’s contraband, and I want to be an Orthodox faster
Orthodox faster

Orthodox faster, faster, faster

Though I like my scallops and there’s shrimp to chew
I’ll be sick of them in a week or two
I’ll soon have pasta coming out my ears
It drives me to tears, but I want to be an Orthodox faster
Orthodox faster

Well I shouldn’t grumble, tofu’s very nice
And my wife is good at making beans and rice
And soy latté’s better than that fracking goo
But what can I do? Cos I want to be an Orthodox faster
Orthodox faster

Orthodox faster, faster, faster
Orthodox faster
Orthodox faster
Orthodox faster
Orthodox faster

  1. Amen!!!! Good prayer!

  2. Ha! Liked it!

    Paul

  3. Outstanding juxtaposition: The sad little plate of tofu squares and a plea to the Theotokos. Love it. BTW, I have also been enjoying ‘Is Outrage’ to the hilt. It arrived day the before yesterday (Amazon) and the laughs arrived beginning with the first article. Father Vasiliy has a new fan, indeed. But, Oh! Poor Dr. “So-dry-as-dust-is-dry” Penguin. He’s my second favorite. Cheers~
