A Truly Lousy Poem on the Title

I got ordained the other day
So now they call me Reverend.
The formal sound sure strikes me weird;
At least my name's not Sigmund!
For Reverend Sigmund would be foul
To my own ears for certain.
If people called me such a thing
I'm sure it would be curtains.

Rev Picklesworth does have a nice ring to it.

With a name like that I should be Anglican.

The title now always reminds me of the book "Gilead" and the narrator describing the arguments between his firebrand preacher grandfather and his pacifist preacher father and how you could tell things were getting serious when they started calling each other "Reverend".

I should read that book annually.

Congrats on the title, me thinks
I know that to some it might clink
But a better man may you be,
When off to the church you do flee
While many will look where they fit
At least you'll know where you'll sit.
