The Lyrics

In order to do penance for the tribute to Juliet Anderson by my alter ego, Callmelennie, on Monday, I now call on my alter-alter ego, CML, to do a tribute to the Catholic ritual of LENT for Thursday
L .. is for the Latin Mass I'll do
E .. is every time I pass on brew
N .. is nary, nary; not a swig of sherry
T .. 's a T-bone steak
That I vow I won't partake, and

Lent .. is what the Church ordains for you
Lent .. is all the things you vow to eschew
CHEW .. a piece of brisket
Take away and give me fish sticks
Lent's a trial for you and me

L .. somber liturgy that I'll attend
E .. is eyes off Julie's* pert rear end
N .. Novena prayering; in the sanctuary
T .. is true penance fer; all the deeds
That I abjur .. and

Lent .. a trial's that meant to strengthen you
Lent .. lasts longer than a week or two
TUE ..'sdays your last last libation
Now six weeks of true privation
Lent is a test for you and me

Lent's a trial for you and me

*You know who I'm talking (or is it gawking) about
