            Mistaken Identity

The Pope arrived in New York in his full Papal regalia
And was picked up at the airport and whisked away for a meal,
Then on the trip to St Mary’s he said his fun times were a failure,
And that it had been fifteen years since he had taken the wheel.

The Pope then said to the Cabby, “just to drive would be bliss,
How about letting me drive, even if its only ten minutes or so,”
The driver was hesitant saying, “I could get the sack for this,”
But seeing it was the Pope he thought he would give him a go.

The Pope donned the Cabby’s cap, then took the drivers place,
He said, it was wonderful to sit behind the wheel once again,
But being intent on the traffic he didn’t notice the fast pace,
When a cop car pulled him over and demanded his name.

But on recognizing the driver he thought, I don’t like my chances,
And in utter confusion he said, “ I will have to call up the Chief,
It’s two o’clock in the morning when the Chief at last answers,
“Now what the heck is the trouble, but please make it brief.”

“Captain, I’m sorry to call you but your guidance please render,
For I’m certainly in need of your judicious advice,
I started to write out a ticket for this speeding offender
But the importance of his passenger I realized in a trice.”

“Who the heck is that important that you call me at this hour?
Now don’t tell me that he’s got Frank Sinatra on board,”
“No,”said the copper, “ but he must be a man of great power,
In fact when I summed up the matter it’s got me quite floored.”

Well then who the hell is it, don’t tell me it’s Bill Clinton,
While with his temper, he was doing his utmost to cope,
“Well, I don’t know,” said the copper,“ and I’m not even hinting,
But he’s being driven around town by the visiting Pope.”

Hardy har har ~ and a half! Lindsay, I love your sense of humour! That was positively adorable! You should send it to the Vatican! lol ...on second thought...perhaps you should not!

Your poetry entertains, informs, is socially conscious, promotes family values and shares the love you have for your country.

I salute you, my My Aussie Man and friend.
I never want to miss a post of yours!

Love you,
Linda Lou

Dear Marge, I'm so glad you enjoyed the post
and I hope you had a good laugh. Thank you heaps. Love Lindsay

Ida my dear, it always gives me a buzz when folk enjoy my verse and can have a big smile
many thanks dear Lady. love Lindsay


Prasad my friend, Yes I'm sure it made that taxi driver's day to be driven around by the Pope. Thanks for the response. Lindsay


Linda sweet lady you are far too kind with your response, but I do appreciate it and thank you for it, but I don't think that the Vatican would be to pleased to read it but they probably would have a smile, love
Lindsay


Alison my dear friend, writing poetry that makes people laugh gives me great joy as well, so I'm happy that you had a smile.
Thank you. love Lindsay


Michael my friend, you are another great poet who I can count on for a response and keep up your good posts, thank you. Lindsay
