Seven Saintly Sinners

Seven saintly sinners sat sitting among the flames

Of primordial passions put to working on their brains

Making mock morality and guided by the chance

Of being given breath again by so called moral man

Ignorance stood staunchly by the side of Mr. Greed

While Mrs. Want begged mercy for the plight of her son Need

And Mrs. Pride sat prudishly and pondered who was wrong

While Mr. Lie lugubriously bespoke of all her charms

And oer this congregation of reinspired dead souls

Sat Self the seventh saint whose sin had resurrected all
