Most pictures and words from Anthony C Murphy

Tuesday, 19 June 2012


Father Eckersley polished his chalice as I imagined Alfred
Hitchcock would have had he been as catholic in his taste
of religion as he was in his choice of film choices

Fr Coyne, less forthcoming to the congregation
would show his shined pate backwards to the monstrance
unknowing of the crowding oh on his reflected raw sausage crown

Fr McKeown was a different story
getting married as he did
to the cleaning Mrs. Kelly in her widowhood

Fr Nathaniel moved to Cumbria
having had cardinal approval
to look after number one

Father Spring had an afro
and indifference to a no
when he asked to come in

Canon Flynn
Now there was a man
He had us all home by eleven
