St Augustine


His theology, it was not the least
He used to make Africa his conquest
Robed in righteous red and gold
Crowned in silver, linen of old
The greatest thinker of the Romans then
He studied what was to become of Man
Stopping to talk to a boy
Running near the pebble shore
Reminded Augustine of a time
When he was free and wild and prime
He cannot empty the sea of its salinity
Or change the doctrine of the Trinity
Yet changed the Christian faith for that
The Empire would worship one in Spirit
He made the ancient Faith all powerful
Like Jesus healing at the stirring pool
He turned away from fornication
And even those times of insufflation
The world stopped going round the Sun
And the angels played their Carillion
To bring all those saints and sinners back home
The merits of Augustine’s ocean of wisdom
