The death was recently announced of the Rt Revd David Jenkins  sometime Bishop of Durham
No one comes with clouds descending
None for favoured sinners slain
Not a single saint attending
In that non-existent train.
Expels them with superior brain.
Genderless the dazzling body
Deep the bones in unknown tomb
Innocent of wonder working
Offspring of no Virgin Womb.
What we are asking
Is of interest to whom?
Yea, Amen, let all ignore him
Neither praise nor denigrate
All this vain attention seeking
Was so cheap and second rate.
Soon achieve their sell-by date
