The Couple

We thought he came to wine and dine

Like everyone else to laugh and drink

We knew not we hosted the VINE

We who never stopped to think.


“We are out of wine”, the servant said

“woot! Ho! Ho!! Ho!!!” our drunken response

“‘tis thus time to serve the badly bred”

Whilst men be merry and discuss.


But He whom we showed no class

Whom we called not ‘Master’

Suffered us his timing to pass

Saved our day by word and water.


Oh that water to wine, that changed our thought

From flesh to spirit, our call thus began

For human minds fathom it not

To serve the best at end is not of man.


Ah! They thought he saved our feast

Alas! He saved us, even our marriage;

The strength to try and try and nay desist

Our daily cry, our pristine charge.


Let every man who drinks this wine

Let every soul that receives this offering

Let every couple remember this line

‘Better is the end of a thing than the beginning’.
