Tis the season to be jolly
Drop donut crumbs and spill the coffee!
“Alas, alas,” the new carpet cried,
“Somebody do something,” – So the church board tried.
Got out their pens and with much chagrin
Wrote “Fifteen Rules for All to Heed”
But, alas, again!
The people in that congregation
Could not, would not, did not read.
Well, the pastor made a recommendation
Call the King James Council of Arbitration.
After much negotiation, with relief and much elation.
They passed the following decree
And posted it for all to see.
Thou shalt carry thy coffee in steady cup,
Lo! Thou shalt balance it carefully to keep it up.
And, thou shalt not tread on thy gooey bread.
“Give it to us in NIV,” responded the Refreshment Committee.
Still the problem had not been solved.
Who should be involved? What should be resolved?
“What shall we do about dropping crumbs,
Slopping coffee, and sticky goo?”
So the problem was given to the Common Sense Board
And, all together, in one accord,
They put on their thinking hats,
Submitted one rule. “DON’T DO THAT!”
