All the faces in the room
Now turn to look at me,
Standing at this podium
For all the world to see.

I close my eyes and wait
For the inspiration to come,
I think I held them way to tight
'Cause now my lids are numb.

I open up my mouth to speak
Out comes a squeaky voice
I look into the crowd and see
Two laughing little boys.

I feel my heatbeat changing speed
I feel my face turn blush
I try to listen to my heart
I hear a toilet flush.

Finally I find my voice
After several minutes over
I say "Welcome everyone,"
"I'll make this easy, Church is over"

One of the laughing little boys
Stopped laughing and turned to me
"But Reverend, I can't go home right now,
It's only 10:03."

LOL ... Thanks Chris I like this type of light hearted entertainment the best ... I had and experience like this when I was married ... You know  ... there's no reason the brides can't get up and say a few words as well ... except for the reason that it's the last time we ( guys ) will ever get a chance to be heard ... so we might as well take our time ... get it said and enjoy the experience ...
ok ladies  ... you can hit me now ... I'm done

You did a good job brightening up the place in my eyes, you even manage to bring a smile to my face with this fine poem here.
